Of the east wing corridor. 
Who viands as a link tor the times to come 

With the limes that are no more.

O the Stream of students entering and leaving its halls much of 
the interest of a great university is due. Similar as the 
outward appearance is, and similar also the average quality of 
mind and character, each individual brings his own experience, 
and awakens in those who teach him a new interest. We 
cannot help wondering what the future has in store for each 
graduating year. Some will be forced to hew out their own 
path for the firSt time. Hitherto protected by a society of 
friends, they have made no venture upon the unknown world, 
and there has been little to call forth latent power. Others, 
doubtless many, of those in the graduating years, have had to assume responsibility, and by 
their own endeavours have put themselves where they are. The future of neither class 
can be read in the results of examinations, for they do little more than determine whether 
one has an aptitude for acquiring knowledge, and the ability to slate accurately what has 
been recently learned. Such college tesls. however, should be an encouragement to the 
successful, for presumably they will continue to exercise their abilities and to develop others. 
There are also splendid talents hidden amongSt you, which will be discovered some 
day to the pleasure of old comrades. There may be perchance some failures; few, I hope. 
But if men fail, prove unequal to their opportunities, become negligible factors, they reach 
this condition usually at the end of a gradual process of deterioration. 

The successful Student should be on his guard against falling into over-confident 
security. Stores of accumulated knowledge are of little value to him who, having neglected 
to marshal his forces and protect his weak places againSt attack, finds himself circumvented 
by an agile adversary, and his lines of communication cut.

The new Principal of Knox College was born 
in the County of Hastings in 1861. He studied 
at Queen's University, Kingston, whence he 
was graduated in 1884 with the gold medal in 
Philosophy and also in History and English 
Literature. In the beginning of 1901 he was 
called to St. James' Square, Toronto, where he 
remained until the end of 1908, when he was 
chosen to succeed Dr. William Maclaren as 
Principal of Knox College. The degree of D. D. 
was conferred upon him by Knox College in the 
spring of 1908. In addition to the administrative 
duties of the Principalship, Dr. Gaudier will 
have charge of the department of Practical 
Training in the work of the College.

History of Class of '09 

"Thai which W( 

T is disconcerting for the historian to find 
that always as his outlook grows events 
dwindle in importance. The first year 
historian has much to record, the second 
not so much, in the third year a dearth 
of materia] is felt, and towards the end of 
the fourth the feeling begins to be that 
tins year does not have an absolutely 
unique history, that, in fact, its main dis- 
tinction from all other years lies in its 
date. The history of the graduating class 
might then take the form of an illuminated design, enclos- 
ing this distinctive mark, or an engraving of the class 
pin. This is merely a suggestion, however, and while the 
management is of the opinion that old ways are best, his- 
tories must continue to be written along the usual lines. 

To make a beginning, then: It was in the early days 
of October, 1905, that a hundred or more individuals met 
for the first time in the Registrar's Office, in the Main 
Building. These had come from various towns and villages 
of Canada, from Nova Scotia to British Columbia, and from 
Hamilton. They tilled out the usual blank forms, made 
the usual modest calls upon heads of departments, and 
were received in the usual way by the faculty. Later they 
were welcomed in the (then) usual manner by the sopho- 
mores, and after this ceremony out of the hundred or more 
individuals aforementioned '01) had been evolved. 

Having introduced '09 we might now proceed to follow 


an . — we are. 

its career chronologically, giving a scrupulous account of 
its achievements in scholastic, athletic and other lines. 
We might present a conscientiously tabulated list of its 
victories in oratory and inter-year debates, of its prize and 
scholarship winners, and of its T. gaining athletes. But, 
besides being contrary to historical method, this course is 
unnecessary, as a glance through the carefully compiled 
biographies of the succeeding pages will afford the suggested 
information. After casting about for one attribute or 
achievement of the year calculated to throw all others into 
comparative insignificance, it is with pride that we announce 
that "Oil's chief claim to fame seems to lie in its "all round" 
character. It is a curious fact that such years, bubbling 
over with enthusiasm and esprit-de-corps, are usually lack- 
ing in outstanding members out of which to make history. 
It is the Shelleys and Carlyles of a University who arc hard 
on the college spirit and destroy the possibility of unity. 
While setting '09 down as the embodiment of genial 
mediocrity, we would like to say that to the broad com- 
posite type of mind which it represents the consensus of 
"pinion accords a higher degree of civilization than to the 
more highly specialized simple type. 

To future record hunters it may be of interest to learn 
that '09 was the last year to keep up the old custom of 
hustling tin- freshmen. We merely mention the fact, as it 
is impossible to enter into any discussion here, of the 
influence on the undergraduate life of the passing of this 
ancient and. by some esteemed, barbarous custom.

History of Class of '09 — Continued 

It is interesting to recall that the report of the Royal 
Commission, which resulted in the passing of the new 
University Act of 1906, was made during our first year. 
Consequently, our time has been passed almost entirely 
under the new regime, and we have seen the University 
grow in a manner unparalleled in preceding years. New 
faculties of Education and Forestry have been added, Con- 
vocation Hall, the new Physics Building, and the Residences 
have been completed in our time, and in our time have been 
commenced the new Thermodynamics Building and the 
School of Domestic Science. 

The last year has been one of many changes. Early in 
the term the women of '09 made a final effort to familiarize 
University College to academic garb, with the triumphant 
result that this year's group photos may be dated by the 
presence of the mortar-board. Varsity has experienced 
a considerable evolution, and would hardly recognize its 
former self in the semi-weekly bulletin sheet which now 

appears under that name. In athletics, has not '09 some 
reason for self-congratulation upon the return, after many 
years, of the Mulock Cup to the Faculty of Arts ? And 
as a purely adventitious circumstance it does not seem 
unworthy of note that our first and last years witnessed 
phenomenal rugby matches with the Rough Riders and the 

For four years '09 has walked, talked and studied, 
danced and skated, all with its own characteristic enthus- 
iasm and versatility. 

"Life was gay. we have come the primrose way." 

This has been a year of last things and as we have 
checked off each of them we have endeavored not to dwell 
too regretfully on the thought that there must also be a 
last examination, slightly preceding the final ceremony of 
kneeling before the Chancellor in Convocation Hall.

Graduating Dinner, Class of '09 


NASMUCH as the Graduating Dinner serves 

In knell to the members of the fourth year the 

approaching close of their college careers, it 

■ ■ might be expected that it would be an event 

m ■ of solemn and funereal nature. It is a curious 

M Fact, however, that the members of the class of 

'09 who foregathered in the dining room of the 

r^B B^ Queen's Hotel on the evening of Monday, De- 

| ■ cember 7th. seemed hut little bowed down at 

^m the prospect of being in the near future, weaned 

K from their Alma Mater and casl mil upon the 

■J cold world. 
They ate. drank and were merry — uproariously so — 
quite regardless of the mournful import of the feast. 

Inasmuch as the occasion was of such a nature as to 
indelibly stamp itself upon the memory of all present, and. 
further, inasmuch as almost every male member of the 
fourth year was there, it boots not to eider into details. 
The scene must be impressed upon the mental eye — also 
ear — of all who participated. Suffice it so say that never 
was held a more successful function of its kind. 

The fare to the palates id' boarding-house fed under- 
graduates was as the rich meat of the cattle of the Sun to 
Ulysses and his ship-worn sailors, and even if threats of 
future retribution more terrible than the anger of Helios 
Apollo were in the oyster cocktails. English plum pudding 
and other indigestibles, what mattered it so long that the 
present was sweet .' 

Strengthened by such viands, the diners were ready to 
withstand the worsl onslaughts of the postprandial speakers. 
Nor were those found wanting. The clatter of the eating 
implements having been superseded by the cheerful popping 
of ginger-beer bott le corks. Class President II. E. B. Coyne. 
as arbiter bibendi, gave the sign, and forthwith, as at the 

filled with wind 

rending of the bag of Aeolus, the air was tilled 
— a tempesl of words. 

First came II. C. Hindmarsh, hurling many a winged 
word in praise of Alma Mater. 

"What have I done for my Alma Mater?" asked Mr. 
Hindmarsh at the close of a swelling rhetorical period. 

"Not a - — thing." came the ready answer — and as 
Homer has it. "they all laughed sweetly at him." 

Then followed many another champion with his sheaf 
of platitudes, under the hail of which the crowd grew more 
and more restive, until finally it refused to abate its howling 
for any more words, winged with wisdom though they 
might be. Then, seeing that the mob was goaded to the 
limit of endurance, and fearing what might befall, the 
magister <■< nat gave the signal for dispersion.

History of Class '10 

ANEW era has com< — the Oneties. The Naughty years 
have run the full length of their existence, and, fitting 
tribute to their last remains, the glorious hustle which they 
had so cherished was not separated from them. 

If it can be said that chance alone destined us to unfurl 
the banners of the Oneties, it can also be truly said that never 
did chance and good fortune more favorably meet. Animated 
by the possibilities which lay before us and confident of 
success in our undertakings, we established during the first 
half of our undergraduate course a record wholly without 
precedent. Not a mark of distinction which has come within 
the range of our possibilities has failed to enter into our 
possession. The social functions of the class have been 
on all occasions marked by undoubted success. The Varsity 
athletic teams, in which we feel such pride, have all wel- 
comed the loyal and effective support of our year. During 
the last vacation it was the unique privilege of '10 that 
one of our boys should be selected to represent our fair 
Dominion at the Olympic games. In literary and debating 
societies our ladies and men have early made their mark; 
but the crowning glory came last spring, when the ora- 
torical contest was added to our swelling list of victories. 

As we have passed in turn from freshmen to sophs. 
and from sophomores to juniors the spirit of achievement 
and innovation has never been permitted to burn low. It 
is not all of college life to plug: we hope this year, and 

not without good reason, to repeat our past successes in 
the field of oratory and debate. In social functions we 
have hitherto remained content in improving upon the 
features which we found before us, but as juniors there 
is a feeling spreading through our ranks that the day has 
come when the time-honored reception and skating party 
are not adequate to fulfil the social demands of a live and 
active class. To meet this growing tendency we are en- 
deavoring to add new features to the social aspect of 
academic life, features which, though not attempted by 
other years, we are confident can be carried to a successful 

Truly it has been the aim and purpose of each Executive 
to make the present a success, but our great ambition is to 
establish an undergraduate record which may be worthy 
of the name we bear — "the first of the Oneties." 

The spirit which has animated us thus far in our 
achievements is evidently not 
lacking in the two succeeding 
years. We recognize and appre- 
ciate in them worthy competi- 
tors for all that an academic life 
can offer. May it be our united 
ambition, and that of the years 
which are yet to come, to make 
the decade of the "Oneties" the 
most renowned in the history of 
University College !

History of Class ' 1 1 

IIK Class of Onety-One is famous for 
the Qumber of precedents which ii 
has set iii the college Life in Toronto. 
The numerous original ideas due to 

us. such as the Reformed Hustle 
and the Social Class Meeting, give 
evidence of the actively working 
brains in this year which has just 
taken its place and title as sopho- 
For various strange and unintelligible reasons, the 
present third year made no attempt during our first year to 
inflict upon us the initiation usually accorded to fresh- 
men. Having had no experience in this line we might have 
been justified in giving up the good old custom, but, instead, 
our wonderful year evolved a plan which has the distinction 
of satisfying not only the men of the first two years, hut 
what is strangesl of all. the faculty as well. This hustle 
was in reality an athletic contest between picked men of the 
lirsl and second years. Here we showed our decided supe- 
riority over the (Mass of '12. which is plainly evident from 
the fact that out of seven events we lost only one. 

It is not surprising that the freshmen were such easy 
victims, for we have an enviable reputation in athletics. 
The Rugby Team, which won the [nter-collegiate Champion- 
ship of Canada, was well represented from Onety-One; 
in the Soccer Football Team over half the men were from 
our year: at .Montreal Track Meet our men aided materially 
in winning the meet for Toronto. In every line of sports 
where our University excelled the men of Onety-One did 
valiant work. 

The year is justly noted for its brawn, but there is a 
corresponding mental development. Last term we began 
well by defeating the second year in the Inter-year Debates, 
which gave promise of future ability; this year we have 
already won from the freshmen and shall likely carry off 
the honors from the two upper years. In this line we can 
point proudly to the accomplishments of our ladies. When 

the Round Table Club challenged Varsity to a debate, the 
ladies chosen as most worthy to uphold the honor of the 
college were from Onety-One. 

As social organizers we hold a preeminent place among 
the other years. Other years had recognized the fact that 
the majority of the members, of their individual classes 
were not well acquainted and they had tried various forms 
id' class meetings to remedy this evil. The other attempts 
having' failed, we faced a difficult problem when we took 
the matter in hand, but we surmounted all difficulties and 
held a meeting which was so successful that the other years 
were chid to follow our lead. The class spirit due to this 
meeting' was an important factor in making' our reception 
such a decided suc- 
cess. The remarkable 
character of this event 
\vas its total absence 
of "wall flowers. " In 
spite of this lack- 
it was acknowledged 
that in the history of 
the University the 
decorations had never 
before been so artis- 
tically arranged. 

Before leaving this 
history, one event 
must be mentioned 
which cast a gloom 
over the class this 
term. This was the 
death of Mr. R. B. 

Oassels. but he still 
lives in the memory 
of his classmates, not 
only for his deeds on 
the football held but 
for his upright and 
manly qualities.

history of Class ' 1 2 

FROM many and divers parts of our Dominion came the 
Freshman Class of '12. They came, bringing to the 
University a force and vigor which will in the years 
to come do honor to the guiding and discipline of our 
Alma Mater. It is not easy to gauge the possibilities of a 
class but anyone who has come into touch with the strength 
and quiet idealism of the class of '12 may readily predict 
that they are men and women who will give good account 
of themselves in their generation. 

Thai ancient relic of barbarism, the hustling of fresh- 
men, has no longer a place among the customs of our 
University. There has been substituted for this custom 
a less savage and more real test of prowess between the 
fust and second years — the athletic contest. In this event. 
uotwithstanding the novelty of their surroundings and 
the unsteady heart-heat which comes from the experience of 
things new. the freshmen of '12 gave the sophomores no 
reason to be ashamed of their antagonists. 

In spite df that exuberance of spirits which is the fresh- 
man's righl everything has been peaceable in the history of 
our year. Freshman energies have been directed towards 
their all-important social and educational interests. Once, 
indeed, during the term their spirits overflowed. <>n the 

niuhl of the October "hit." elections time seemed to drag 
somewhat heavily to certain freshmen, and they sallied 
forth in search of adventure. It so happened that on the 

same evening the fair "co-eds" of Queen's Hall were 
expressing their social talent in some mysterious manner. 
It seemed to those freshmen that no such social function 
could be complete without their presence. They accord- 
ingly made their way towards the hall and serenaded the 
ladies with songs and divers yells. This conduct was 
deemed by the authorities "somewhat chaperoneous and 
not f neshettiquette, " and the participants were a few days 
later summoned on the carpet. 

Our class reception was held on December 12. Although 
a number of sophomores succeeded in entering uninvited, 
yet the function was the success of the term. Our labors 
of preparation were well seconded by the evident desire 
of all present to enjoy the event, and the outcome satisfied 
us that all our perspiration and trepidation had not been 
in vain. 

Perhaps more worthy to lie recorded than any mere 
event is the fact that we freshmen are beginning to appre- 
ciate one another. Friendships are being formed: and the 
friendship of those who are associated in the search for 
truth becomes marvellously potent. 

Until now harmony has prevailed among us. May it 
still prevail through the remaining years of our university 
life, as each one. with unwavering purpose, toils towards 
the ideal he has set before him.

The Mock Parliament 

THE fourth annual session of the .Mock Parliament, held 
in Concovation Hall, on the evening of Thursday. 
December TOIh. was one of the most wildly sensational 
recorded in the annals of that august body. 

The programme of the Government, as published exclus- 
ively in the Evening Blast on the day of the meeting of 
the House, excited the very greatest interest among the 
general public, and the attendance at the commencement 
of the session was unprecedented. 

The work of the evening was begun by the grand old 
statesman. Premier Ever-Fussing Raney. who in a short but 
stirring speech set forth the aims of the Government and 
indulged in a terrible arraignment of the Opposition. Leader 
of the Opposition, Jack(H)ass Bull, replied amid cheers 
from the left of the House. As the business of the session 
proceeded the members warmed to their work; sensation 
followed sensation, and the excitement of the onlookers 
grew apace. 

The climax was reached when shortly before ten o'clock 
the Hon. Good Girl's Delight Kilpatrick took the floor 

and proceeded to make an inflammatory speech against the 
Women Suffragists. Hon. Mr. Kilpatrick carried the 
House. Opposition and Government alike, along with him 
through burst after burst of impassioned oratory. So 
absorbed was he in his speech that he paid no attention to 
threatening demonstrations on the part of lady spectators 
from various parts of the House, but continued his terrible 
indictment of the whole sex. He had just reached the 
peroration and was declaiming, 

"This rock shall fly 
From its firm base as soon as I." 

when a wild shriek of "Votes for Women" echoed through 
the great hall and beskirted creatures were seen dashing 
from various parts of the House upon the members, waving 
umbrellas and other lethal weapons as they came. 

The Hon. gentleman did not wait for their arrival, but 
hurriedly made for the nearest exit. His example was fol- 
lowed by the remainder of the members, and Speaker Dyke, 
as he fled from his chair, proclaimed the House adjourned. 

The membership of the House was constituted as follows : 

The Government 

Hon. Ever-Fussing Raney, Premier. Hon. Long Jag McLaughlin, 

Hon. Cupid's Rival Burroughs, Minister of Distilleries and Breweries. 

Minister of Cute Finance and Cunning Ways. Hon. Rubber Goods Hodge,

liking for athletics and English and History, no mean executive 
ability and, incidentally, a genial disposition and sterling char

classmates and become a most efficienl President of '09 in his 
third j iar! The study of human nature is Hubert's hobby, and he 
takes the Book of Books as a text. Hence his position as Convenor

the work of a .Modern Language Course. Miss Allison has found 
time to devote to many of our college societies — to the Dramatic

She deemed it fortunate, and was content 
To study 'neath that mighty government." 
Was born in Toronto, but received her early education in Ham- 
ilton, where she matriculated in 1905. Realizing that her capa- 
bilities were being wasted on the mountain air of that ambitious 
city, Olive came to Toronto and joined the class of '09, in the General 
Course. In spite of a more or less eager search after the essential 
B.A., she always found time to devote to winning glory for her 
college, by playing a stellar game on the hockey cushion. Olive's 
friends wish her all good luck after leaving college. 



"Who is it that says most? that can say more

E. C. Arbogast was born near Sebringville, Out., in December, 
1887, and came to the University in 1905 and enrolled in the Honor 
Arts Course of Mathematics and Physics, specializing in Astronomy 
in his fourth year. He was the first Secretary of the new Astro- 
physical Society, and although always taking an exceptionally high 
standing in his college work he goes forth with a practical knowledge 
of current events, etc., and gives every indication of working out a 
successful future career. 


• ' Life teas gay,

Edith Atkin was born in St. Thomas, where she received her early 
education. Having obtained Honor Matriculation she came to Toronto 
to enter University College with the class of 1909. Throughout her 
course she has been a first-class student in Moderns, winning a share 
in the Italian prize in her first year. In the Literary Society she 
held office as First Year Representative and at the autumn teas her 
violin playing was always a noticeable feature. She also had a due 
share of class spirit and held office on the Class Executive of the 
Third Year.

"The most manifest sign of wisdom — a continual cheerfulness." 
Mildred Belton was born in the city of London in the year 1888. 
Her course of education was confined entirely to this city until the 
year 1905, when she entered the University of Toronto as a member 
of the class of '09. She undertook the study of Modern Languages, 
more as a matter of course than through any distinctive ability in 
this direction, and consequently at the end of the first year she 
decided to devote the remaining three years of her course to the 
acquiring of more general knowledge. Although her name has never 
figured prominently in college events, yet she has been singularly 
fortunate in attaching to herself a large circle of friends. 



' ' Wie es auch sei, 
Das leben, es ist gut." 
Miss H. E. Black was born in Toronto, where after varied experi- 
ences in public and secondary schools she graduated from Jarvis 
Street Collegiate Institute in 1902. Two years later she entered 
University College with the class of '08. For two years she took 
an active part in the social and academic side of University life, 
officiating upon the Glee-Club Committee and the year Executive. 
The next year, owing to illness and bereavement, Miss Black did not 
attend University but returned to join the class of '09. This year 
Miss Black carried off the prize for Spanish recitation, and in the 
fourth year she proved a very capable President for the Athletic Club 
of University College.

Born twenty-one years ago in the city of Winnipeg, Hugh received 
his preparatory course at Tuckwell 's Private School, after a very 
short period at the Winnipeg Collegiate Institute. He took his first 
year at Manitoba College and then decided to come to Toronto. Here 
he entered the Political Science Course of the second year. He took 
the General Course in his third and fourth years. At present he has 
law in view and will probably enter Osgoode Hall. Hugh takes with 
him the best wishes of his class. 




''Hi silent, and people will think Hint you are a philosopher." 
"Herb" favored Newton, Perth County, as his birthplace. There 
in the middle of the 'SO 's lie first beheld the light of day. But he 
was not bound by "Newton's" laws. His search for deeper truth 
led him, after completing his primary education at Listowel High 
School, to enter Varsity with the class '09 Philosophy. The Socratic 
"truth'' did not satisfy his keen analytic mind, nor "silence'' solace 
his quiet dreams, so he took second year Orientals with fourth year 
Philosophy. He is an active member on the Y.M.C.A. and Philoso- 
phical Society executives. Stirling qualities of character have won 
for him many lasting friends who predict for him a noble future 
in the Presbyterian ministry. 



Claude Broley was born in Creemore, Out., in 1887. He took 
his high school training at the Jarvis Street Collegiate, matriculating 
from that institution in 190."). On entering the University he chose 
the Mathematics and Physics course, specilizing in Astrophysics. 
Claude has done good work in his department, but even better in 
psychological subjects, his observations on the relative influence over 
the volition possessed by a twelve o '(dock lecture and a twelve o'clock 
lunch being very valuable. He is keenly interested in athletics from 
the bleacher's standpoint, being acknowledged a leader in rooting 
circles. lie has been officially photographed as a member of the 
Arts' Dinner Committee, 


"She has little slow eyes, eyes of deepest brown, 
Sort of don't-you-know eyes, eyes that never frown." 

St. John, N.B., was the early home of this fair girl graduate, but 
she was not destined to bloom in that atmosphere, however agreeable it 
might be to her. An unspeakable longing drew her west and she took 
up her abode in the Queen City of Ontario. Here, in the course 
of time, she entered University College with the last of the Naughties. 
Her intimate friends were not alone to know and appreciate her 
cleverness in rhyming, for in her final year she was elected to the 
office of ('lass Poetess and has gracefully discharged her duties. 



"A ml some say flint i/> an John." 
Jeffrey H. Bull is a personage quite unknown around Varsity. Be 
it known, therefore, that we refer to John Bull. John Bull's name 
isn't John at all, but everyone calls him that, so he makes no objec- 
tion. John was born at Brampton on September "J, ISss. He joined 
the class of '09 as a fresh Soph. Immediately on his arrival he 
threw himself into the middle of things and despite the fact that he 
lacked a year has been as much photographed as anyone round the 
college. He has served on the Kxecutive of his year as Second Vice 
President, acted on the Arts' Dance and Dinner Committees, and 
been Leader of the Opposition of the Mock Parliament. He is, further- 
more, an ardent politician, one of the pillars, in fact, of the Old Lit.

"Our echoes roll from soul to soul 
And grow forever and forever." 

The southern shore of Georgian Bay is the homeland of 
Water H. Bunt. His early education was obtained at the 
Kemble Public School and the Owen Sound Collegiate Institute. 
After teaching successfully for five years he entered the Faculty of 
Arts, taking the Biology course. He is a diligent and successful 
student, a member of the Natural Science Association, and has taken 
a deep interest in the ' ' Lit., ' ' athletics and Y.M.C.A. While thoroughly 
appreciative of real enjoyment, he is one who looks upon life 
seriously; and, truly, the words of the poet, quoted above, are to him 
a guiding principle. 



"A merry heart and true." 
Cecil Roy Burroughes, alias "Gimp," is a Toronto boy. After 
considerable difficulty he was persuaded to enter Ryerson Public 
School, and, having favored that institution with his presence, he 
passed on to Harbord Collegiate, matriculating to the University 
in 1905. Here, his energies have been directed into many channels, 
but his spare time has mostly been given to Political Science. 
"Gimp" is one of the most notorious characters of '09; as a student 
always "getting there," as a classmate bright and cheery enough 
to be always welcome, as a friend unfailing in his loyalty. His 
good common sense, and his unceasing activity, insure him all the 
success '09 can wish for him. 


"She reason'd without plodding long. 
Nor i ii r gave her judgment wrong." 

Nurine Butler was born in the city of London, Ont., where she 
received the greater part of her education. After she graduated 
from the London Collegiate, she entered the Western University, 
where she spent her first three academic years. Better late than 
never, in the fall of '08 she joined the ranks of Toronto University, 
where she has found a warm welcome and proved herself a faithful 



"Tliis might be tin pate of </ politician." 

Cassius Elmer Campbell is a true Canadian patriot. He began 
an illustrious career by making his debut on Dominion Day, 1888, in 
the city of Ottawa. There he received his early education and there, 
too, first displayed an insatiable desire for polities. Since he joined 
'119, Elmer has entered enthusiastically into every phase of college 
life. As a debater, as a member of the Class Executive and Historical 
Club, but especially as First Vice-President of the Literary Society, 
he has proved his ability and power. Always "on the go," always 
"death" on Old Lits, and always loyal to '09 and U. of T, Elmer 
has our every good wish. We look to see him a leader in our

''His broad clear brow in sunlight glowed." 

It was in Cheltenham, Ont., in 1889, that George's first smile was 
recorded, but must of his boyhood was passed among ''les habitaux." 
His high school life was begun in Toronto (Jarvis Street Collegiate 
institute) and finished in Niagara Kails, Out., in 190o, when (ieoryo 
came tu Varsity. He chose the B. and P. course as the one most 
likely to satisfy his hunger for knowledge and his thirst for work 
and, like Launcelot, proved "a huge feeder." George has served 
on the Class Executive and on the Dinner Committee and in other 
nays has proved himself a man of public spirit. His perpetual good 
humor and sunny smile have brightened many an hour of toil, while 
his cheerful self-sacrifice and generosity have endeared him to his 
many friends. 


"Women will love her, that she is (i woman 
More worth than any man." 

Miss Carpenter was born in Hamilton, Ontario. She graduated 
from the Collegiate Institute in that city and took the course at the 
Normal College before coming to the University. She entered the 
class of 1909 and chose the course of English and History. Her 
work in these honor subjects has been creditable. At C^ueen 's Hall 
she has taken part in the plays of the Dramatic Society, held office 
on that club's executive, and acted cm the House Committee. She 
wis a resident worker from the Women's Literary Society to 
Evngelia House. 



Jessie Burrell Carrier received her preparatory education at Aloul- 
ton College, Toronto, and in 1905 registered in Moderns. Throughout 
her course she has taken a great interest in the life of the college, 
where her happy disposition and keen sense of humor have won her 
many friends. 




In 1887 Blake, very young and unsuspicious, was born in Lindsay, 
Ont. He decided to honor Toronto with his presence, hence we find 
him making a quick getaway from Parkdale Collegiate Institute in 
possession of the Gibson Scholarship, second position in the Province 
and first-class honors in every department. He took a prominent place 
in political struggles, his aspirations being finally crowned with 
success when he became Historical Secretary of the Lit. for the 
Unionist Party. He also held jobs as Class Treasurer and Secretary- 
Treasurer of the Permanent Executive of '09, which, with innumerable 
committees, served to take up most of his time, though he accorded 
a passing interest to the study of Chemistry. Such an education 
should fit him for a premiership, bespectacled professorial life, or 
a career in a paint factory. 



"A man of sovereign parts, he is." 
Was born in the good city of Toronto. Hylton received his primary 
education at Harbord Street Collegiate Institute, and while there 
showed the same marked ability which has characterized his work at 
Varsity. Entering on his sophomore year with '09 in the depart- 
ment of Political Science, he is ranked among the first-class honor 
men. Hylton has always taken an interest in class affairs, and is 
deservedly popular with his classmates. In his final year he has 
honored with a position on the '09 Executive. On graduating he 
will enter Osgoode Hall, which will no doubt afford another field for 
his talents. 


"Spontaneous wisdom breathed by health. 
Truth breathed by cheerfulness." 
Hanna Gertrude Coad was born on a farm near the secluded 
village of Cameron. Having passed a happy, dreamy childhood 
there, she abandoned her rustic life for one of greater possibilities. 
For five years the Lindsay Collegiate was happy to claim her as an 
energetic, successful pupil. She graduated with an Edward Blake 
Scholarship to join the ranks of Varsity's fair co-eds. and has 
proved a worthy and Valuable member of '09. She has acted on the 
Class Executive and Y.W.C.A. Cabinet and has taken keen interest 
in all the societies and social life of the University. For one so kind 
and true, so clever and successful, the future stands waiting with 
golden opportunities. 



"He hath a daily beauty in his life, 
The noblest mind the best contentment has." 
Since the year 1887 the town of Iroquois, Ontario, has been 
famous as the birthplace of George, but for untold reasons the charms 
of Morrisburg proved more alluring. There he attended the Collegiate 
Institute until 1904, when he decided to honor Vankleek Hill by 
condescending to become a resident. An inquiring nature sent him 
to Toronto and in the autumn of 1906 he entered the class of '09 
as a sophomore. Since his strenuous initiation George has carried 
off each May the laurels of the General Course. Of a retiring, quiet 
and unassuming disposition, his friendsnip once gained is an ever- 
lasting bond. Here's to e'en greater success in the future.

" "I'is much In dares." — Shakespeare. 
A youth named "Paddy"' — a public school in Smith's Falls — 
seven years' hard grind — c'esi fini. After a splendid course at Har- 
bord Street Collegiate this same lad came over to Varsity and on 
the idass list of Naught- X ine wrote as follows: Brian Leroy Cooke. 
Mathematics and Physics. Unselfish was his purpose. Though 
diligent in study he has proved himself a willing worker. In his 
freshman year he was an aide representative on both the ('hiss 
Executive and the Dinner Committee, and while specilizing in Physics 
in his final year he discharged his duties as President of the M. and P. 
Society. Perhaps Brian's coming years will he spent in seclusion and 
scientific research; probably he will prefer the more strenuous life of 
the politician. In any case, here's that he may grasp that golden 
opportunity which is never offered twice. 



•• 'Twos how you talked and looked at things 
That iiiiuli us like you so.'' 
Euphemia Johnson Cowan comes from Seaforth. She received her 
preparatory education at the public and high schools of that town. 
On entering Varsity she chose the Honor ('lassies course, where her 
standing has always been very creditable. Miss Cowan has held 
office on the Y.W.C.A. Cabinet and has ever taken a sympathetic 
interest in the Literary Society and other forms of student life. 
During her four years at college she has made not a few friends who 
appreciate her subtle humor and her keen sense of justice. 


"Remote, unfriended, melancholy, slow." 

John absorbed all the knowledge that the Sarnia schools could 
instill into him. Wishing, however, to broaden his mind, if not his 
frame, he entered the Political Science class of 'Hi*, and has already 
attended several lectures. John has always taken an active interest 
in all the branches of University life. In his final year he was 
Secretary of the Track Club, Manager of the Champion Varsity II. 
Rugby team and Secretary of his class. He is a member of the 

XIII. ('lub, and is one of the most popular fellows who has ever 
entered Varsity, and his numerous friends will always be ready to 
drink with .John to his own health.

•'Ami ih< /i asleep he seem'd and yet awake." 
H. E. B. Coyne was born in St. Thomas, Ont., and there received 
his pre university education. From the first he lias been one of the 
most prominent representatives of '09, being identified with nearly 
all departments of college life. A living example of "all things come 
to him who sleeps," many important offices have fallen to his lot, 
viz., 2nd Vice-President of the Literary Society, 1907-08; Secretary 
of the Arts' Dinner Committee, 1908-09; member of Historical and 
Political Science Clubs, and President of '09. In addition to being 
"a j^immI University man,'' he is a good student and has strong 
gregarious tendencies — qualities which have made him a member of

Margaret A. Coyne was born in St. Thomas, Out. She matriculated 
from the St. Thomas Collegiate and entered the University of Toronto 
with the class of 1909 as a student in the English and History 
course. Miss Coyne has identified herself with many of the activities 
of general college life, as well as the more local interests of 
Queen's Hall. She has held office in the Women's Literary Society 
and Class Executive and in her fourth year was Associate Editor 
..I th. Varsity and Univrisily Monthly. She is a member of the 
Toronto I lhapter of Alpha Phi. 


"Speak of me as I am, nothing extenuate 
Nor aught sit down in matin." 

Bessie Cruickshank spent her early life in the Western States and 
New Westminster, British Columbia, where she attended the high 
school. After passing her senior matriculation examination she 
entered University College in her second year and chose to specialize 
in English and History. In her course she has obtained a very 
creditable stand. That Miss Cruickshank has taken a genuine interest 
in many phases of college life is evinced by the fact that in her 
third and fourth years she acted upon the class and Athletic 
Executives and has always been an active member of the Dramatic 
Club. She belongs to the Toronto Chapter of Pi Beta Phi. 



Josephine Potter Davis graduated from Moulton College. Toronto, 
and in 1905 came to Varsity, registering in Moderns. During her 
four years' course she lias always taken interest in the affairs 
of the college, and it is to her keen sense of humor and many other 
attractive qualities that she owes her popularity at Varsity. 



Arthur Dempster, one of '09 's best mathematicians, was born 
August 14th, 188(5. He attended Givens Street School, Toronto, and 
was known from his earliest days as an excellent student. At matricu- 
lation, when seventeen years old, he almost fulfilled the expectations 
of Harbord Collegiate staff by standing second in General Proficiency. 
During his first year ill-health fell to his lot and compelled him to 
spend a year in the West. Since then, however, he has held his 
First-Class Honors. Owing to a retiring modesty, all his owu, his 
circle of acquaintances may be smaller than that of some, never- 
theless we who know him know him to be a broad-minded and kind- 
hearted philosopher. We know him to be well-read and thoroughly 
musical. We know, in fact, that respect and welcome will be 
accorded him wherever he be. 



"Titles of honor add not to his worth." 

'09 owes much to the little town of Scotch Ridge, New Brunswick, 
for having produced such a man as Angus Dewar. His early education 
was received at Milltown, but Angus' soul burned to give as well as 
receive, and so, having taken his Normal training at Frederieton, he 
went out into the world to instruct the ignorant. In 1905, however, 
destiny led him to Toronto and '09 marked him as her own. As 
President of his year, as in all departments of college life and work, 
Angus bore himself with a dignity ami power which marks him as 
one of the leaders of the year. '09 sends him forth confident that 
a great future will be his. 



"Of every noble work 
The silent part is best." 
Miss Agnes Dulmage entered Varsity in 1905, after obtaining 
her preparatory education at Palmerston Public School and Harriston 
High School. She registered in Mathematics and Physics, but having 
a predilection for the former in her fourth year she decided to devote 
her time exclusively to it. She quickly found an enduring place 
among her classmates, to whom she endeared herself by her true 
womanly disposition. In the committee work of both the Literary 
Society and Y.W.C.A. her services have been indispensable. Especially 
has she made the Y.W.C.A. her sphere of most earnest activity, and 
as President in her final year has made it a complete success. 


"Full well I <an my clothis chaunge, 
Take ron. ami make another straunge." 
Siil. was born in Croydon, Eng., but early emigrated to Canada and 
settled at New Westminster, B.C. Here, in addition to his matricula- 
tion, he took extra-murally the first two years of the university course. 
After a sojourn among the coast newspapers he came to Varsity 
in 1905, and spent one year in B. and P. He then suffered a relapse 
into newspaper work, rejoining '09 in 1907, this time in the General 
Course. From the first his willingness and ability to assist in any 
project have made him invaluable to his fellow students. He has 
served on the Lit. Executive and Torontonensis Board, has edited 
tin' Evening Blast and the Unionist, and has managed the English 
Literature and Speculative Clubs. His time outside his college course 
has been spent in everything from school teaching to dish washing 
on river steamers.

Maurice .1. Folinsbee was born in Strathroy, June lt.ith. 1889. 
The public school and the Collegiate Institute of his home town fur- 
nished the foundation for his higher education. Maurice early proved 
himself an athlete of no small repute, and during the three years spent 
at the Western University, which he entered in '05, he twice won the 
individual championship on Field Day. He was also Captain of the 
W. U. Hockey Team, and he has proved himself on all occasions to 
be an enthusiastic supporter of clean and manly sport. In October last 
he joined the class of '09 at the University of Toronto and we send 
him forth confident of his success in his future studies at Osgoode.

with the class of '09. At the end of her tirst year .May was unavoid- 
edly transferred to the General Course, but her faithful attendance

"Ami .still they gazed mul ■still the wonder grew, 
That one small head should carry all lie knew." 
Charlie was horn in 1885 in Perth county, receiving his early 
education partly in Berlin and partly at Gladstone Public School, 
Toronto. His preparatory course was taken at Toronto Junction 
High School, where his career has been likened to that of a meteor, 
graduating finally amongst the foremost of the Honor Matriculants 
of the province. He specialized in Science on entering Varsity, 
taking ( '. and M., and has been known throughout as a diligent 
worker, a successful experimenter, and untiring in original research. 
To this last characteristic, no doubt, is largely due his early desire 
to investigate the felicities of married life. His marriage was 
happily celebrated in liins. All who know Charlie prophesy a 
brilliant career for him in the scientific world.

Annie May Gillies claims St. Thomas as her birthplace, but 
received her early education in Toronto. She entered West Toronto 
Collegiate Institute. Her work was of such general excellence that 
in 1905 she entered University College with a Genera] Proficiency 
Scholarship and the William Dale Scholarship in Classics. She made 
Classics her special study and her uniform success has more than 
justified a somewhat unusual choice. Twice, in her freshman and 
junior years, she won the Classical Scholarship. Her life at college 
has been by no means one sided, for the work of the Class Executive, 
the Classical Association, and the Y.W'.CA. Cabinet have benefited 
by a genuine interest and sincerity of purpose which inevitably brings

ability has enabled her to fulfill numerous offices faithfully. She has 
been identified with the Women's Dramatic Club from her first year 
and has given it her best services, holding the office of President of 
this society 1907-08. Her many friends expect her to take her [dace 
in life's drama as well as she has always taken it on the platform 
and in the class. She is a member of the Toronto Chapter of Pi

"I charge thee, fling away ambition, 
By that sin fell the angels." 

Murray Gordon has established a record: Since his arrival at 
Varsity he has never occupied an office, having assiduously side- 
stepped all attempts to place him there, and now at the close of his 
college career he remains the only unphotographed man in Varsity. 
He was born in Tottenham, Ont., on April 18th, 1887; there he took 
his public and high school training, finally entering the University 
in the General Course with the class of '09. Despite the fact that 
he scorns all offices, Murray has managed to play an important part 
in college affairs, for without his presence no ' ' party, ball or drum ' ' 
is considered complete, while in early spring he distinguishes himself 
as an active and enthusiastic supporter of the "Old Lit.'' Party. 



"A full rich nature fret to trust." 

Born in London Township, Miss Guest received her early education 
in Birr Public School and Lucan High School. In October, 1905, she 
entered the Western University, London, enrolling in her chosen 
course — Modern Languages. Here she spent two years, during which 
time she was a member of the Executive Committee of the Literary 
Society and active in the Dramatic work of the college. In her third 
year she transferred to Toronto University, where by her gentleness 
and sweet retiring disposition she has won many warm friends. 


"She doeth the little kindnesses 
That others leave undone or despise." 
Miss Isabel Grant Gunn, whose native town is Clinton, graduated 
from the Clinton Collegiate Institute in 1905, and in the autumn 
of that year entered University College with the illustrious class of 
'09. She chose for her course English and History. Although she 
has always given her books first place she has found time to make 
many friends, who have appreciated her quiet dignity and keen sense 
of humor. She has held offices on the Y.W.C.A. Cabinet, the Lit. 
Executive and the Class Executive. 



"Worth, courage, honor, these indeed

Nellie Beatrice Ball was a matriculant of Bowmanville High 
School. After teaching a short time, she registered at University 
College in Household Science, and in English and History, but when 
the former was made an honor course of Arts in 1907, that became 
the single goal of her ambition. In the keen contest for honors she 
has succeeded in wresting first place throughout the entire course, and 
is regarded as a peripatetic encyclopaedia of knowledge in Chemistry, 
Biology and Ethics. She was a member of the Class Executive, 
Athletic Club and Ladies' Glee Club until its demise. Her genial. 
fun-loving disposition has endeared her to her co-workers in the

Tom registered in the B. and P. Course in 1905. A most versatile 
Student, he lias always taken a leading part in athletics. In Canada, 
in the United States, and even in Australia his lacrosse ability is well 
known. In his freshman year he earned a place on the Varsity 
Boekey Team and is manager for 1908-09. He is also a member 
of the Athletic Directorate. Besides being an athlete he stands high 
in his course, and his numerous friends feel sure of a brilliant future 
for him in his profession.

"Zetta" Harper's earliest days were spent in Cobourg, but it was 
in Peterboro' that she attended Collegiate Institute, where her vivacity 
enlivened many a dull Algebra and German lesson. Since coming to 

Varsity she has not neglected the duties of her course, but has also 
found time to enjoy to the full the pleasures of college life. As 

Prophetess in the third year, her energy and ability were much 
appreciated in the work of the Executive. Her warm-hearted loyalty 

and her ability to see the humorous side of life have made her a

"For this was the gentlest man and the meekest that ever sat in hall 
among ladies." 
"I'm from Missouri. Show me," were the first words he whispered 
upon entering St. Thomas. The innocent subject of this sketch was 
born in Bismarck, Missouri, in 1887, of Canadian parents. X^pon 
matriculating from St. Thomas Collegiate in 1904 he entered Varsity 
with '08 and endured intellectual treatment for two years. His 
academic clock was stopped one year by a flight into journalism with 
the Detroit News. Modern History numbers him among her devotees, 
and predicts his brilliant future. During his course he has been a 
member of the Class Executive, Lit. Executive and Dinner Committee ; 
President of the Historical Club, and Editor of Varsity in the Michael- 
mas term. 



"Nor ever was he known an oath to rent. 
Or curse, unless against the government." 
John uttered his first plaintive protest in Toronto just twenty-one 
years ago. An inherent taste for things mathematical and legal, 
fostered at Jarvis Collegiate, was later to mature through two 
courses at Varsity. He entered the University with the class of 1909, 
spent one year in ' ' Mathematics and Physics, ' ' and the next three in 
Political Science. John's interest in all things has given him the 
best the University affords. He has been Secretary and President 
of the Tennis Club, also runner-up for the undergraduates' champion- 
ship; sporting editor of Varsity; leader of the Old Lit. Party, mem- 
ber of the tennis team, the Historical Club, and his Class Executive. 


"The gentleness of all the gods go with you." 

This councillor of the graduating class of '09 was born in this 
famous University town, and with the exception of a year abroad 
has lived here all her life. Four years ago the ambition for higher 
education seized her and she entered University College and helped 
to swell the ranks and fame of Naught-Nine. All her classmates are 
agreed that there is no sweeter nor more amiable girl in their midst. 
Her gentleness and courtesy towards everyone make her beloved, and 
her unselfishness and unassuming nature have endeared her to all. 
Their wishes for her can only be, that no evil day may light upon 
her to disturb her serene soul, nor embitter her sweet nature.

It is a legend among the good people of Napanee that Arthur 
Hooper at his birth uttered correctly the principal parts of three

Lindsay Collegiate, whence he matriculated to the University in 1905. 
At college Arthur has given himself to much besides Classics. As a 
member of the Lit. Executive and Historical Club, as Treasurer of 
the College Y.M.C.A. and notably as a member of the Senior Tennis 
Team, he has shown that his powers are not all centred on Greek

"With a gttmpse of a height thai is higher." 
Brockville is happy to claim as one of her (laughters Mary Malvena 
Hurd, although Toronto has been her home since 1901. An honor 
graduate of Harbord, "Vena" entered college as one of the youngest 
members of the class of '09, and, with Moderns as her course, lias 
given evidence of unusual ability, winning in her first year the Italian 
Prize, and as a sophomore the Flavelle Scholarship in Biblical Litera- 
ture. In the Modern Language Club and the Y.W.C.A. she has taken 
an enthusiastic interest, but her dearest protege has been the Uni- 
versity Choir, to which she has devoted much time and energy. Her 
lofty ideals, cheerful industry and unselfishness ensure for her that 
success which alone is worth the having. 



"There is a certain something in your looks, 
A certain scholarlike and studious something — 
You understand — which cannot be mistaken, 
Which marks you as a very learned man." 
James Malcolm Hutchinson made his advent from Devachan on 
October 18th, 1883, at Bowmanville. Mercury is his ruling planet, and 
hence his vivid imagination and desire for change. Fortunately, his 
planet was in Libra, which fact prevents him from becoming too much 
of a rolling stone. He taught the teachers in the rural schools all that 
a healthy liny could, then rushed through high school to his University 
career. His favorite studies are Biology, Theosophy, Ocultism and 
Poetry — which of these he prefers only his most intimate friends, God 
and Lazenby, know. Though an admirer of astronomy he never 
succeeded in acquiring a star of his own.

standing in the class lists, winning in her second year the Italian 
Prize. Kathleen is characterized by her untiring energy and ambition 
in whatever sphere she directs her attentions. In her first year she 
was Historian on the Class Executive. For four years she has he! 1 
office on the Modern Language Club Executive, being Vice-President 
for '08-09. In athletics, Kathleen centred her interests on tennis. 
She was President of the Inter-Collegiate League and Tennis Curator 
for Varsity, '07-08. In her final year she was second player on 
the Tennis Team, when University College won the Tennis Trophy. 
She is a member of the Toronto Chapter of Pi Beta Phi. 


''So eager for the future, come what may." 
Annie MacLean Jackson claims the American city of Duluth as 
her birthplace, and the first ten years of her life were spent here and 
in the city of Ionia, Michigan. In 1898 the entire family took up 
their residence in London, Canada, where a year later Dimple entered the 
Collegiate. At the age of fourteen she matriculated from this institute, 
and the two following years she spent in desultory study preparatory 
to entering upon a more extended course at the University of Toronto. 
In 1905 she enrolled at University College, deciding to perfect herself 
in the knowledge of the foreign languages, application to which she 
has never allowed to interfere with the formation of many warm

Among; the many lights of Varsity that belong to the constellation 
of Lindsay there are none whose glimmer attracts us more than 
Stella 's. Lindsay is her birthplace. There, too. she received her 
school training, attending St. Joseph 's Convent and later the Collegiate 
Institute, from which she graduated in '05. Notwithstanding the 
fact that she tried to attend lectures and work faithfully during her 
University career, she managed to have "a real, good time," and, 
moreover, has endeared herself to her college friends, who will always 
have fond memories of her as one who never "flurried nor worried.'' 


"Stand fast Craighelahi." 
On April 12th, 1888, George Kilpatrick joined the pipers of old 
Scotia. He entered the Grammar School of Aberdeen some three 
years later. 1899 found him in Canada, "far awa' frae bonnie 
Scotland." Having matriculated at Winnipeg in 1905 he came to 
Toronto to continue his studies at the University of Toronto. Here 
he has shown the buoyant spirit, versatile genius and sterling char- 
acter of a noble Scot, "leal and true." A member of the Class 
Executive, Historical Society, winner of the MacDonald Scholarship, 
President of the Gymnasium Club, a member or the Track Team, 
and of the "Lit." Executive, President of University College 
Y.M.C.A., George has received in giving. '09 will drink "a cup of 
kindness yet for auld lang sync. 


" To strive, to seek, to find dud not to yit Id." 

( harles Otto Earle Kister was born in Chippawa, Ont., in August, 
1888. Here he received his public school education, after which he 
spent three years at Niagara Falls Collegiate Institute. From here 
he matriculated in 1904, and in 1905 entered the B. and P. class of 
'09. At college, Earle has been a familiar figure in basket ball 
circles, and was a member of the University team for the season of 
'07-08. In academic lines he has always been well to the front and 
we predict for him a brilliant and useful career in his chosen pro- 
fession of Medicine. 

KNOX, P. J. 


'And thou art long and lank and brown, 
As is the ribbed sea sand." 

P. J. Knox trailed his clouds of glory into Victoria Harbor, Out., 
in the year of 1883, but it was at Fenelon Falls that the gradual 
dissipation of said cloud took place. He matriculated from Lindsay 
Collegiate Institute in 1901 and afterwards spent two years in Victoria 
College with the class of '08. Then followed a year of prospecting 
in the New Ontario mineral belt. Here P. J. showed himself a sturdy, 
capable man of affairs, and his sterling qualities brought him Dame 
Fortune's "silvery" smile and won him many staunch friends. After 
graduation Knox will study law. With his natural ability and shrewd- 
ness, joined to manliness of character and unbounded good nature, he 
will undoubtedly stand in time at the top of his profession and thus 
finish life, as he began it, in a "cloud of glory." 




"It is not growing like a tree, 

In bulk, ilulli make man bitter be." 

Lisle joined Naughty-Nine as a sophomore. He brought with him 
abundant energy and a sunny smile and has been mixed up in pretty 
nearly everything in sight. In the Unionist Party he has been a 
leading counsellor and lias been on the Literary Society Executive. 
He has also been a member of the Varsity Board, his Class Execu- 
tive, the Historical Club, XIII. Club, and several other organiza- 
tions. He has played on Jenning's Cup teams and on the only Arts 
team for several years to win the Mulock Cup. In his last year he 
was Secretary of the committee in charge of the University Theatre 
Night. He intends td study Law. 


"Full of sound ami fury, signifying nothing." 

J. M. L. commenced his academic career in 1904, registering in 
Arts in the department of Biological ami Physical Sciences. Owing 

to illness he was prevented from returning the following year, but 
resumed his course in 1906 and carried off the Edward Blake Scholar- 
ship in Biology and Physics. He engaged in athletics and took a 
live interest in student affairs, holding offices on the Class Executive 
and Dinner Committee, 1907-08, which, however, did not prevent him 
again ranking first in his department. Although graduating in Arts 
In- still has two years to spend in Medicine and until then the 
University halls will continue to re-echo to the "sounds and fury 
of Livy." 


"Each ilnji in ir discoveries In nnuli ." 
In the fall of lid!.") a youth from Iroquois was found by the 
University "cop," wandering about the hack campus, muttering 
over ami over, "M. and P., M. and P." Taking him to the Registrar, 
Christie explained the circumstances and then and there Milton E. 
Liezerl was condemned to four years in Hie Mathematics and Physics 
course. The theories of Electricity, optics and kindred subjects 
always interested Liezerl deeply and so his final year was in a large 
measure devoted to research work in Physics, lie was a Unionist 
Representative on the Lit. Executive of '08-09 and served as Secretary 
of the Rifle Association during the same period. 



"Sin speaks, behaves ami arts just as sht ought." 
Preparatory to entering the University of Toronto Miss Mac- 
Payden studied at Orangeville Collegiate Institute, and from there 
graduated after a four-years' course. It was thin that she decided 
to delve into the mysteries of the higher learning, as offered by the 
General Course. In her first year she ably filled the office of First 
Vice-President and has always been an enthusiast in all college 
functions. Her bright and genial disposition has won her many 
warm friends, as litis also her keen enjoyment of the good things 
Of this life. 

M. L. R. — " Natun hath framed strangi fellows in her time. 


"Here's a sigh for those who love me, 
And a smile for those who hate; 
But whatever shy's above me, 

Here's a heart for any fate." 

Kathleen left her home town, Lucknow, at an early age for St. 
Margaret 's College, from which she matriculated, entering Varsity 
with the class of '09. For two years her course was English and 
History, but the broad culture of General Proficiency then tempted 
her. She soon showed that she did not came to Varsity for book- 
learning alone, as college functions, athletics, the Literary Society, 
the Y.W.C.A. and Evangelia Settlement all shared her attention. 
Her sweet voiced songs have ever been most welcome within college 
walls and her unfailing courtesy and willing helpfulness were always 
in evidence. 



' ' Who can say more 
Than this rich praise — that you alone are you." 

Miss MacRobert's home is in London, Ontario. Graduating from 
the Collegiate Institute there, her first year was taken "extra mura," 
and as a fresh sophomore she entered the class of 1909 in Moderns. 
Of all matters musical she has been an invaluable part. During her 
final year she held three prominent offices — Musical Convenor of the 
Young Women's Christian Association, Representative of the Women 
on the Torontonensis Board and Vice-President of the Year of 1909. 


Born at Uxbridge, Basil obtained his early education at St. 
Mike's, and entered Varsity as a freshman and a Unionist with '09. 
In his second year he deserted polities for the football field, where he 
has shone ever since. He played on the Seconds, Captained the Thirds 
when they w-on the championship in 1907, but will go down to fame 
as one of the notorious 23 who won the Mulock Cup for Senior Arts. 
"Pussie" has held every office in the Political Science Club except 
the Presidency, and was once Class Orator. He is also a member 
of the XIII. Club. In his final year he was chosen Business 
Manager of the Year Book and succeeded in carrying that publication 
to a successful finish. He has always stood well in his course and 
should have a bright future in the legal profession. 



"Bethink thee on her virtues that surmount 
Her natural graces, that extinguish art." 

Miss Martin received her early education in St. Marys, where 
she graduated from the Collegiate, gaining the Edward Blake Scholar- 
ship in General Proficiency and First Scholarship in Moderns and 
Mathematics. Entering University College with '08, she specialized 
in Moderns and Mathematics, then in Moderns and English and 
History in her second year, retaining throughout her scholarship 
standing. In 1907 Alice forsook the halls of learning to become a 
dignified pedagogue, returning to graduate with '09. Throughout 
her course she has shown an active interest in college societies, figur- 
ing on the Class Executive of 1906. 




"Thou would' st be great — 
Art not without ambit ion." 

Stanley P. Maher was born at Keene, Peterboro ' County, in L889. 
After receiving his early education at Peterboro' Collegiate Institute, 
he allied himself with the "Big 4'' of Jarvis Street Collegiate, and 
there obtained his Senior Leaving. ''Stan. - ' then gained that famous 
M. and P. class of '09 and being the possessor of a peculiarly 
attractive and adaptive character he won and retained the enviable 
good-will of his fellow students. In his third year he devoted much of 
his time to furthering the interests of the Mathematical and Physical 
Society, but in his final year all his energies were concentrated on 
"Astrophysics." May his be an illustrious career, that will reflect 
credit upon himself ami upon his Alma Mater. 


"Resolutely and faithfully what she was, and humbly what she 
aspired in be." 

Hannah <!. Matheson was born in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia. 
After receiving her elementary education there she proceeded to 
Glen Mawr, Toronto, from which she matriculated in 1905. During 
he]- course at Toronto University Miss Matheson has maintained a 
creditable stand in her class, and has found time to be interested 
in other sides of college life as well. Her first three years were 
spent in residence at Queen's Hall, and in her junior year she took 
part in the play given by the Queen's Hall Dramatic Club. Miss 
Matheson is a member of the Toronto Chapter of Alpha Phi. 


Was born in Elgin County, Out., in 1882, but removed with his 
parents to Huron County. After passing through the various grades 
in the public school lie entered Gleneoe High School and later attended 
Goderich Model School. After teaching in Ashfield for three years he 
entered Goderich Collegiate Institute. Matriculating in 1905 he 
entered the course in Philosophy in the University of Toronto. 



"It is strange with what a sharp decisive graci he snatches 'In 
true likeness of a matter." 

On the 16th day of August, 1886, "Mac" had his first look 
at the canal over at St. Catharines. What he saw there must have 
stimulated him to energy, for hi' got busy ami matriculated from 
the St. Catharines Collegiate Institute in 19(14, after which he rested 
for a year in order to be able to come to Varsity and look after 
tlie welfare of the '09 B. and P. course. However, he in no wise 
confined his energies to this department alone, for in his third year 
as a member of the Class Executive and in his fourth as a member 
of the Arts Dance Committee and Mock Parliament he showed his 
widespread interest in University affairs. With his pleasant manner 
and quiet humor, "Mac*' was popular with all who knew him ami 
their best wishes for success go with him as he starts out to make 
his mark. 




1. George Hagan, the University watchman, appears only at 
nightfall and vanishes with the dawn. He is consequently known 
only to the students, nocturnal in their habits. He is usually 
accompanied by a terrier and a large bunch of keys, neither ot 
which are shown in the picture. 

2. George Prattis, usually known as the "Colonel,'' is janitor 
of the Undergraduate Union. He sits in the receipt of custom in 
the pool room and is a familiar figure to all who resort therein. 

3. Charles Bradshaw, usually described as "Charlie," is the 
official janitor of University College. He is. however, better known 
in his capacity of distributor of mail to the students. 

4. James C. Christie has the unique distinction of being the only 
Toronto policeman popular among the students. The illustration 
shows Christie as he used to be ; of late his appearance has been 
enhanced by a new and striking chief's uniform. 

5. George Hake is janitor of the Gymnasium, and consequently 

a familiar figure to all of athletic proclivities. On matters sport- 
ing he is an exhauscless fountain of information. 



".I simple child 
That lightly draws its breath, 
And feels its lift in every limb, 
What should it know of death {work)?" 
Mac was born ;it Walter's Palls, Sept. 26, 1887. He received his 
preliminary education at Georgetown and Collingwood High Schools, 
where he gained sufficient momentum to carry him to the University 
of Toronto. .Mac spent three years in the study of the scientific, 
Imt employed the fourth in correlating himself with the business 
world. He lias won for himself, in his four years, some football 
fame, figuring each year on the hack division of the Association Team. 


• • .III that wakes to noblt action 

In his noon of calmness lies." 

"Tall and robust by nature, these properties but indicate the 

sterling qualities within." Mac was a favorite with us all. Toronto 

claims aim as her son, but shares the honor of educating lit in with 

Ridlej College. Five years in that hall of learning being insufficient 

to --hike his thirst for knowledge, lie exhibited his discretion by 

enlisting in '09. Though engaged upon the scientific intricacies of 
Biology, Mac did not neglect class functions, being always present when 
'09 needed him on the campus or in Reception Hall. In the summer 
he --ought recreation in Northern Ontario in surveying and lire 
ranging. Thus lives this noble son of an illustrious Scotchman — late 
Judge McDougall; not only to deserve our sincerest wishes, but to 
snatch from Dame Fortune her eoronei of fame. 


• • Tht heart of honor. 
'Tin tongut of truth.'' 

Miss Barbara Winnifred McKelvey was born in Brussels. After 
taking her junior matriculation in that place she completed her pre- 
paratory education at the Seaforth Collegiate Institute and entered 
Varsity with the class of '09. Miss McKelvey is an enthusiastic 
member of the General Course, where she holds a place in the General 
Proficiency list. Her interests have not been only academic and 
everything she has undertaken has been done with a joy and deter- 
mination which has fixed for her a place in college life. Her host of 
friends will always remember her as one fond of fun. magnanimous 
in her judgments and endowed with good common sense. 



"A count' nanci in which do m< 1 1 

Sir, , I n cords, jiromisi s OS SWt it." 

Received her early education in St. Thomas Collegiate, from which 
she graduated with lienors in '05. In '67 she entered the class 
'09, where her gaiety of manner, rendered more charming by an 
underlying earnestness, won many fast friendships. By her sweet- 
ness and unselfishness she will hold the confidence and esteem of her 
fellow students. 



Mclaughlin, mono. 

"Rare felicity, this! She can talk in a rational way, can 
Speak upon subjects that really are matters of mind and 

of thinking, 
Yet in perfection retain her simplicity." 
Mono McLaughlin was born in Toronto. Her education prior to 
entering the University of Toronto was completed at the Parkdale 
Collegiate Institute. During her college course her scholastic record 
has been very creditable and she has taken a prominent part in all 
phases of college activity. In her second year she was a member of 
the Executive of the Women's Literary Society, during '07-08 she 
held an office on the Athletic Association, and in her final year she 
was President of the Women 's Literary Society. 


McLEAN, C. V. 

■ ■ Still watt rs run il< ep." 
Picturesque Fenelon Palls was the scene of Victor's birth. At 
Port Perry High School he won distinction. Iu the autumn of 'Ob', 
entering the class of '09, "Wick"' kindled his torch at the altar of 
the General Course, but, being unable to hide his candle under a 
bushel, he set out on that strange and scarcely trodden way, Semitics. 
and has left a light which flings far its welcoming radiance to many 
a benighted brother. Though decidedly a student, he has found time 
to identify himself with Y.M.C.A. activity. Though the Presbyterian 
pulpit calls him, with a voice that will not be denied, he has no 
serious thought of laying aside his sunny humor. His friendship is 
held highest by those who know him best. 


''Who sair in every man a brother. 
And found in each ii friend. 
Percy S. McLean received his early training in Paisley, Ont.. 
his secondary education in Owen Sound Collegiate, from which insti- 
tute he graduated with a scholarship and gold medal. Being of a 
mathematical turn of mind he chose Mathematics as his University 
course, in which he has always taken a very creditable stand. In 
addition he has a great musical talent ami often dispels the gloom 
around the "Union" with a few bars of rag-time. "Mc" is of a 
very genial disposition and lias endeared himself to all with whom 
he has come in contact and his fellow students bespeak for him a 
very successful career. 



"A careful man. and great." 
This stalwart Scotchman was born at Tottenham, Out. He received 
his primary education at the High School, Bruce Mines. Cut., and at 
St. Andrew's College, Toronto. After spending his freshman year 
with 'OS, Stirling entered on his sophomore year with '09. Prom 
the start hi' has devoted his intellectual energies to the General 
Course, and has always stood high in his class. Stirling has always 
taken an interest in the affairs of '09, and is a modest young man 
with a strong character, wdiose good qualities are deeply appreciated 
by his intimate friends. He is undecided as to his future occupation, 
but whatever sphere he enters his sterling worth assures him success. 

H. H. — "The sorority man." 

McMillan, e. gordon. 

In October, 1905, Mac ambled over to college and immediately 
took a leading role on the stage of University affairs as Secretary 
of a famous freshman class. The night before his second year 
examinations, he settled down to work, and has since been featured 
as a student in the Political Science Course. Mac acted on the ' ' Lit. ' ' 
Executive in his second year and now bears the society's criticism 
as Chairman of the Arts Dinner Committee. An ardent tennis 
player, he has won a place on the Varsity Team and has been a 
successful Secretary of the Tennis Club. The Historical and XIII. 
Clubs claim him as a member. In time the name of E. G. McMillan 
will grace a legal shingle. 


McMillan, william james. 

William James McMillan was born in Xassagaweya Township, 
llaltiui County. Having an inclination for the teaching profession, 
he entered the Guelph Collegiate Institute, and after a very 
successful course obtained the necessary qualifications. During 
the subsequent five years, the youth of his home school and Hell's 

SI I, Nelson, were under his beneficent sway. The fall of 1904 

and spring of 1905 were spent at the Ontario Normal College, 
Hamilton. In October. 1905, Mac entered the Chemistry and Min- 
eralogy Course. During his four years he has maintained his place 
;i- a clever ami conscientious student and has at the same time taken 

a healthy interest in Varsity's best life. When Mac graduates he 
will again devote himself to teaching. 


' ' True eyes, 
Too pun and loo honest in aught to disguise. 
The sweet soul shining through thine." 

Miss McRae received her preparatory education at Owen Sound 
Collegiate Institute. She came to Varsity in the fall of '(15 and at 
once entered into the activities of college life. Her fellow students 
showed their appreciation of her social qualities by electing her a 
member of the first Class Executive. In her desire for a liberal 
education Miss McRae chose Philosophy as her course of study. 
Those who have the good fortune to know her intimately appreciate 
her ready sympathy, unselfishness and quiet humor. 



"He was shout-sholdred, brood a thihke knarre, 
Tin r was mi don thai h< nolde hevt of harre, 
Or breJoe it at a renning with his head." 

Nancekivell, commonly known as ''Nance.'' is an Oxford County 
boy. He came up to the University for the first time in 1903, join- 
ing the class of '07, but was forced to relinquish his course on account 
of ill health. Two years later he returned and resumed his college 
course under the aegis of the class of 'oil. "Nance" has a reputa- 
tion for steady, thorough-going work and although in matters academic 
he can hardly be said to have shone, he has at least escaped the 
illumination of stars.

"His good blade carves the casques of men. 
His tough lance thrusteth sure, 
His strength is <is the strength of ten, 
Because his heart is pure.''' 

Born in Oxford County, schooled at Ingersoll and Woodstock, 
six pears a teacher, a short residence in St. Louis and Saskatchewan, 
and considerable travel, are the chief facts of his pre-university 
experience. Tom entered the B. and P. Course with the class of 

'(K). Here he delved deeply into his studies and also entered with 
spirit into every college activity, taking an energetic part in athletics. 

His high ideals, sound moral principles and boundless fund of humor 
specially tit him for his noble profession and augur well for a brilliant 
and successful future. 



You can till from his appearance thai hi' came from Trenton, 
Out. He attended the Separate and High Schools of his birthplace, 
then passed on to Toronto to spend three years at St. Michael's 
College. Iii 191)5 he entered Varsity as a sophomore with 'OS. He 
found University life a trifle slow and betook himself to Rochester, 
\eu York. Here, however, lie did not stay, but returned to Varsity 
;is a member of 'oil. If the Fates are kind, Hon will enter Osgoode 
next fall. 


"A burnin' and <i shinin' light 

To a ' tliix place. 
Frank entered Varsity with an Edward Blake Scholarship. At 
Varsity he chose the Biological and Physical Science Course, in which 
his reputation as punster, leader, Greek translator and discourser of 
music is unquestioned. In athletic circles he litis always been a 
shining light, figuring prominently on Varsity I. Eugby and Lacrosse 
Teams during the seasons of '06, '07 and '08. In his fourth year 
he was Captain of the Champion Senior Arts Rugby Team — the 
first Arts team in many years to capture the Mulock < up. As a 
member of two Y.M.C.A. Executives, the Students' Parliament, and 
as Vice-President of his year Executive, he has taken a leading part 
in practically every phase of University life. 


" 7(i utraque fortuna /hi rut us.' ' 
"Prepared for any emergency or fit for anything'' is this man 
Joseph M. Paterson. Joe, who is commonly known to the boys as 
''Pat,' - and to the girls as ?. (hums to have reached the dignified 
age of twenty, a statement which nobody will deny. After a varied 
public and high school experience, Pat landed at Varsity without 
showing any evil effects from his youthful escapades. During his 
four years spent at Varsity, Pat has thoroughly demonstrated his- 
ability to raise a racket, and his fellow students feel confident that 
in all cases where good looks, winning ways and an aggressive dis- 
position are the three unknowns, Pat is bound to succeed. 

••I'ni i, hi Georgi Smith, Put mil Georgt Smith." 


1 ' Honor a iid .shame from no condition rise: 
Act well your part; there (dl the honor lies." 
Maurice was born July 8, 1886'. He obtained his early public 
school education in the New York public schools; when in 1897 his 
parents came to Toronto, he finished his public school education here. 
When fourteen years of age, he already found himself a wage-earner; 
but Maurice had higher ambitions, and decided to enter the Medical 
profession. With this end in view, he engaged a private tutor, and 
in June, 1905, was matriculated at Toronto University. He entered 
with the class of '09, and has obtained honor standing in his entire 
course (B. and P.). He financed himself throughout by the money 
he had saved, and by teaching in one of the city public night schools. 
Knowing his zeal, and his pluck, we can easily prophesy for Maurice 
a happy and prosperous future in his chosen profession. 


Harvey S. Price left his happy home in Manitoba some years 
ago and entered the class of '08, B. and P., with the idea of becoming 
a medical practitioner. However, on the completion of his first year 
he grew restless and spent some time in Ireland, where he first 
realized how politics could do a country. After this experience he 
was heard to remark: "They, too, are gamey, " and, refusing 
further enlightenment as to the purport of this cryptic utterance, he 
resumed his Biological studies with the 'Mast of the Naughties. ' ' 
Yet, note the finger of destiny. The inevitable has happened, lie 
became a Political Scientist in his fourth year and will shortly 
become a legal light. Keep it dark — he will be a P-L-T-C-N. 


"Strong in trill 
To strive, to seek, to find and not In yield." 
Of the many students who have claimed Harbord as their Collegiate 
Alma Mater, May F. Quail is one of the most brilliant. May gradu- 
ated from Harbord in 1903. After two years, when the 'Oil's came 
up, the inspiration seized her to take up University work. She chose 
Moderns as her course. Every year her standing has been excep- 
tionally good. In her third year she tied for the Italian Prize. 
Y.W.C.A. work and the Modern Language Club have also claimed 
her interest and attention. May has shown especial talent and 
eloquence in debating and has become one of the favorite debaters 
of her year. She was Poetess on the Class Executive for '07-08. 



"Dost thou hue life, tin ii do not squander time." 
After imbibing what information he could at West Toronto 
Collegiate Institute, Fraser came to Varsity and enrolled with the 
class of 1909. He is a Scholarship man in Political Science, 
having won both the Alexander Mackenzie Scholarships. A con- 
sistent worker, he has proved, in everything he has undertaken, 
that he is of sterling worth. He has been identified with nearly every 
department of college life and many important offices have fallen 
to his lot, viz.: President Intercollege Debating Union, Secretary 
Political Science Club, Associate Editor of Varsity, Leader of the 
Government in the Mock Parliament, Arts Representative to the 
Students' Parliament, '08-09, and, in addition, he is a member of the 
English Literature and Historical Clubs, 

University College in Winter. 



"There's little of the melancholy element in her!" 
Peterboro ' Collegiate claims Miss Roberts as its own, where she 
is remembered as a successful student, a leader in its Literary 
Society and Editor of its publication. After graduating in '05 she 
entered Varsity. Here she cheerfully plunged into the jungle of 
Biology and Physics, whence she now emerges, having explored its 
depths and nonchalantly speaking of things deep and learned and 
unpronouncable. The Class Society knows her as the one who most 
nearly adequately set forth its glories in verse, and the Lit. as the 
one who so frequently carries off the palm of victory in debate. She 
is true-hearted, clever, versatile, delightfully humorous — one of 
Varsity 's splendid girls to whom we look to do great things. 



"Firm and resolved by sterling worth to gain 
Love and respect, thou shalt not strive in vain." 
Little Britain, a village to fortune and fame unknown, claims 
Vera as one of its worthiest representatives. At an early age she 
gave evidence of her characteristic independence by breaking away 
from the ties of home to attend the Lindsay Collegiate Institute, 
whence she came to enlist in the noble contingent of '09. During 
her collegiate and college life she has always been a faithful student, 
but, more than that, she has been a genuine all-round woman. On 
her Class Executive and in all college organizations she has made her 
influence felt — effectively, not obtrusively. She is one about whom 
it may truly be said — wherever she goes the one word, ' ' sterling, 
will be stamped upon her character. 


' ' Knowledge dwells 

In heads replete with thoughts of other men; 

Wisdom in minds attentive to their own." 
' ' Gib ' ' was born in Toronto, and received his early education 
at Jarvis Collegiate. Matriculating with honors in Classics, Moderns, 
Mathematics, Science and History, he entered Varsity as a fresh 
sophomore with the Political Science class of '09. He has been active 
in all branches of student life, and as Treasurer of the Lit., Class 
Critic, member of the Arts' Dance Committee, and champion inter- 
year debater, he has displayed the highest executive and oratorical 
ability, besides winning distinction as a shot-putter. He is also a 
member of the Historical and Economic Clubs, and in his final year 
was a Vice-President of the Y.M.C.A., and Editor of Varsity — during 
its second term as a newspaper. 



"I never felt the kiss of love, 
Or maiden's hand in mine." 
Fred was born on ''Ladies Day,' - 188<>, in Marthaville. His 
higher education began at Chatham, and in 1903 he graduated from 
the Ridgetown High School with honors. In addition to this he carried 
off the scholarship in mathematics. After teaching for a year, 
' ' Robbie ' ' decided that he was needed at the University and entered 
the M. and P. section of '09. Since his first year he has taken an 
active interest in association football and this year holds down the 
Presidency of the College Association Football Club. 

T. B. M. — "The midget captain, as big as a pint of pea mils. 



"For tin n an a thousand magpies 

Willing to talci tin yoke.

But n good cigar is a smoke." 
Cliff first saw light in the village of Florence on the 3rd of 
February, 1888. His preliminary education was received in the 
Ridgetown and Dntton High Schools. He came to the University in 
L905, burdened by the First Edward Blake Scholarship in Science, 
and entered the course of Chemistry and Mineralogy. This year he 
is specializing in Chemistry and expects to graduate to a soap factory 
in the spring. Then we will get pure soap, ('litl' is the Representative 
of his course on the Fourth Year Executive.

•'.1 spirit full of pleasant brightness." 

Miss Winifred Robinson was born in St. Thomas. She received 
her primary education at the St. Thomas Collegiate Institute and 
took her first academic year at Smith College. Seeing then the error 
of her ways, she entered the General Course of the Arts Faculty at 
Toronto University in her sophomore year. Fortunately, she came 
just in time to swell the ranks of the class of Naughty- Nine, of which 
she has been a loyal supporter ever since. She is a member of the 
Toronto Chapter of Alpha Phi. 



"Mil slumbers if I slumber on not ship. 
Hut a continuance of enduring thought, 
Which i In a. I can resist not." 

Alice Rooney was born in Toronto and received her early educa- 
tion at Loretto Abbey, where she took the medal for General Pro- 
ficiency in Junior Matriculation, ami the gold medal for Senior 
Matriculation Latin. After graduating, she came to Universitj 
College, where her sweet, dreamy nature has endeared her to all. Her 
many friends think that a high vocation in life awaits her. for often 
during a lecture she would become lost in Klysian reverie while her 
inspiring genius presented to her visions which tilled her with lofty 
as] irat ions. 



''And this is tlic reward: that the ideal shall be real to thee." 
Too often the individual personality is lost in the student type; 
too seldom is it remembered that each ' ' life should be unique. ' ' 
Of Miss Rothery it is true that the strength and truth which char- 
acterize her have lent individuality to her participation in the common 
activities of the student, to her intelligent loyalty to her college and 
her class, to her active interest in the various student societies — 
especially in all the work of the Y.W.C.A. — and to her thoughtful 
study of the problems of philosophy. To speak thus is to express 
implicitly all that is ever possible of confident prophecy. 


ROUSE, MARTIN LUTHER, M.R.A.C., Barrister-at-Law, etc. (a 
Member of the Council of the Victoria Institute), born at Green- 
wich, England, 21st September, 1851. 

If to a noble name received at birth 

I add the influence of stories told 

Of sire and grandsire, who with spirits bold 
Strove to uplift the slave, uphold the worth 
Of God's own Book, and foster peace on Earth, 

At cost of fortune, lands, and friendships old, 
Viewing their honored age and Heavenly mirth, 

I too should error 's tide have backward rolled. 
Alas! a diffidence my soul possest 

My choice of calling early to declare ; 

And I did mount a curious winding stair, 
From colleges to trade and farming prest, 

Ami thence to law, becoming after long 

A guide of youth and combatter of wrong. 



"Quiet and calm, of gentle mien 
And unassuming grace." 
Annie Elizabeth Rowntree's earliest memories are associated with 
Weston, but to West Toronto she owes her education from the first 
day of school until she graduated from the Collegiate. After attend- 
ing Normal College, she adopted teaching as her profession, until, 
having a thirst for further knowledge, she entered college with the 
class of '09. As a student of Modern Languages she has shown 
herself to be one who works and finds pleasure in work. In a quiet 
way she has taken an interest in almost every phase of college life, 
and by her thorough genuineness has endeared herself to her fellow 
students, whose best wishes will follow her into whatever sphere of 
activity she may enter. 



"A woman is only a woman, but a good cigar's a smoke." 

Louis Arthur Roy was born in Moosomin, Saskatchewan, in 1888, 
where he received an excellent high and public school training. 
Matriculating in 1905 he made his bow to Toronto University in 
October of the same year to undertake the arduous B. and P. Course. 
He has always taken a keen interest in all forms of college activity, 
and besides being Athletic Director in the Class Executive of his 
junior year he has proved himself a good sport in association football. 
Despite his onerous duties, he has succeeded in holding a place in 
first-class honors and has otherwise proved himself a man of marked 
ability and sterling qualities bound up in a genial personality.

"Why should life all lobar be?" 

Scottic hails from Listowel, where he received his early education 
and a fondness for the languages. He entered the class of '08 as 
a freshman, but was compelled through illness to remain out a year, 
and became a sophomore with '09. Despite the fact that Morton has 
never overstudied. lie has always made a creditable showing. During 
his li rst two years, Scottic devoted, himself to association football, 
where he showed every promise of becoming a star, but finding it 
was not strenuous enough, he went in for "fussing.'' He is a 
member of the XIII. Club, and one of the most popular under- 
graduates. Scottic 's next abode is at Osgoode Hall, where we wish 
him every success. 


"You're my friend; 
lllmi a thing friendship is, world without end." 

Ethel Scott was born in the picturesque neighborhood of Lakelet. 
In the course of time she graduated from llarristoli High School, and 
after teaching for a short time came to Toronto to cast in her lot 
with the last of the " Naughty- Naught ies. " As a student of the 

Modem Languages sin- won the scholarship iii that course each year, 
and shared the Italian Prize in her first and third years. 'Too broad 
minded to confine her energies to any academic course, Ethel 

has always been an earnest 5T.W.C.A. worker. Inning acted as delegate 

to Silver Bay, and as Convenor of the Bible Study Committee. As 
a sophomore she was Vice-President of the Class, as a Senior Critic 

Of the Women's Literary Society, and iiIiiiii/s — to those who l.mir 


S. W. ('. Scott was born in Hamilton in 1886 and there he passed 
his early youth. He prepared for Varsity life at Highfield School, 
from which lie matriculated in 1905. In the fall of the same year 
he registered in the General Course in University College and by 
doing so joined the illustrious class of Naught-Nine. For four years 
he has held a commission in one of the regiments of this city. 
Throughout his course he has taken a very creditable stand and in 
addition has been a member of the Cricket Team, the Mulock Cup 
Rugby Team, the Rifle Association, the Arts' Dance Committee and

Alton was bom in the middle eighties in the Bruce town of 
Paisley. He succeeded in passing the entrance and in a few years 
had passed the senior leaving from Owen Sound Collegiate Institute. 
Consistency demands that he should have been lenient towards pupil- 
misbehavers; reports persist in maintaining the reverse. First-class 
honor standing in M. and I'. attests to the capacity he has shown 
in University studies. In his final year he created quite a surprise 
by winning two seconds and a third at the lirst Varsity meet ill 
which he was a competitor. lie is a graduate of the Faculty of 
Education and we believe teaching will claim him.

"To study Nature will thy time employ, 
Knowledgt and innocence are perfect joy." 
The subject of this sketch, Miss Amy M. Sheppard, received her 
preparatory education at Harbord Collegiate and at Windsor. She 
entered University College with the class of '08, choosing Moderns 
as her course, but, recognizing a good thing, after a year's absence 
sne joined the class of naughty, naughty-nines. She is an active 
member of the Women's Athletic Club and of the University Choir. 
This year she was chosen Vice-President of the newly organized 
Anglican Women 's Club. Those who know Miss Sheppard well 
cannot but be struck by the dominating interest of her life — the study 
of Nature in all its forms, ami especially of plant life. 



"As a if it, if not first, in the very first lint." 
Harry was born in Toronto on the 11th of January, 1887. He 
received his primary education at Grace and Crawford Street Public 
Schools, while his preparatory course was taken at Markham High 
School, where his high standing in class, his prowess in baseball and 
hockey and his high social qualities received due recognition in his 
being placed, after graduation, on the Markham Old Boys' Associa- 
tion Executive. He entered the B. and P. Course at Varsity and 
has distinguished himself as a steady worker and a jovial companion. 
The '09 Executive has known the value of his assistance, while all 
who come in contact with him are kept in good spirits by his con- 
stant stock of good humor. 


''But what his common sense cam short 
He el-id' out iri' hue, man." 
William John Shortreed was born in Hillsdale, Ont., 1887. He 
received his high school education at Jarvis Street Collegiate, Toronto, 
whence he graduated creditably in 1905. After a brief flirtation 
with B. and P., Billy succumbed to the charms of Political Science, 
whence his devotion has never since faltered in sunshine or in "Star- 
light." Though his inherent modesty has kept him largely from the 
public eye, he has held positions on the Class Executive and on com 
mittees in the Lit. Billy has opinions on every subject from football 
to religious knowledge, and his readiness and ability to defend them 
is well known. Possessed of a logical mind, abundant common sense 
and strong determination, Hilly should be a success in his chosen 
pursuit of law. 



" 7/i arguing, too, the 'doctor' proved his si ill, 
For e'en though vanquished, he could argue still." 
Gordon McGregor Sinclair was born at Brampton. Ont., in lsss, 
but early in his life moved to Toronto. He took his collegiate course 
at Harbord Collegiate Institute. Although "Sine" there evinced a 
fondness for languages, on coming to Varsity he cast in his lot with 
the B. and P. During his college course Gordon has worked rather 
diligently, though sometimes persuaded that much study is a weari- 
ness of the flesh. As a member of '09 he has proved himself to be a 
fellow of exceptional worth, and now as he embarks on his chosen 
profession we wish him that success which a ready smile and genial 
personality are sure to bring.

"The man that hath no music in himself. 
And is not moved by concord of sweet sounds. 
Is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils." 
Perhaps one of the best known members of the class is Fred 
Singer, who came to the University in 1905. As a student Fred 
has ever shown an aptitude worthy of one many years his senior. 
Kindly of disposition, always courteous and obliging, he has won 
a place in the affections of his year that could come only to one of 
' ' nature 's gentlemen. ' ' However, as the musician of the class, his 
memory will be longest preserved, and the pleasing entertainment he 
has afforded at so many of the Lit. meetings will keep him always 
fresh in our minds. 



"To know him were a liberal education." 
Leslie Ord Campbell Skeeles was born in Toronto in 1888. His 
early training was obtained in Gladstone Avenue Public School and 
later at Parkdale Collegiate Institute. Here he obtained Honor 
Matriculation and at the same time developed his athletic powers. 
At Varsity, being a hard worker, he wisely enrolled in the Biological 
and Physical Science Course, and by his diligence has every year 
stood among the foremost of the First Class Honor men. The men 
know him as the fellow who puns and jokes, the ladies as the man 
who draws their ' ' Merry Widows ' ' to such perfection from the back 
of the English lecture theatre. His ability and wholesome love of 
the work give his friends every assurance of a brilliant career in the 
medical profession. 


"Fate tried to conceal him by calling him Smith." 
George flitted down to Varsity from London in 1905, bearing in 
his grip a scholarship. His first year was spent in becoming acclima- 
tized. Prompted by the insatiable ambition of youth, he selected 
for his field of labor two courses, Political Science and Modern 
History, and has demonstrated the folly of his action by winning 
two scholarships. His academic career has been bound up with the 
fortunes of the Arts' Dance and Dinner Committees. The Economic 
and English Clubs receive his attention. Secretarial duties of Class, 
Literary Society and Historical Club have claimed his services. He 
is a member of the XIII. Club. If fate is kind George will direct 
the affairs of an empire from the city of The Eye-Opener! 



"He who doth climb the difficult mountains. 
Will the next day outstrip an idler man. ' ' 
Alex. Speers was born on April 6tn in Holland Centre, Ont. 
After an arduous career in public and high schools and in lumber 
camps, in October, 1905, he entered the M. and P. Course, with 
Junior Leaving and Senior Teacher's Certificate. All through his 
course he has taken a keen interest in the Rifle Association. He is 
one of its crack shots, having in his third year won one of the prizes 
donated by the Association, and in his fourth year has the honor of 
being on the Executive. During his final year he was employed in 
a life assurance office and did his work extra-murally. Alex's per- 
severance alone assures him success in his chosen profession — Actuarial 




Gordon Berkeley Stalker hails from Walkerton, Out., the county 
town of the renowned county of Bruce, where he was born in 188(5. 
Eere he resided and received his primary education, matriculating 
in I'.hii from Walkerton High School. Coming to Toronto in 1905 
he registered at University College with the '09 class to pursue the 
study of Medicine via the H. and 1'. course. Two years hence he 
will be entitled, I>.\'., to another biography, in which his praises may 
lie sounded. Suffice it here to say, that for his dignity, courtesy 
and good fellowship he will long be remembered by '09. 



• • My honor is my lift , both grow in oni .

David hails from Ailsa Craig. His early education was obtained 
in Ailsa Craig, Lucan and London. A love for languages brought 
••Tally'' to the University, where as an undergraduate he has dis- 
tinguished himself as an English and French scholar. Notwithstanding 
a certain native shyness and modesty of character, David's executive 
ability has asserted itself very remarkably during his undergraduate 
days how could he help it, being of Scotch lineage? He held the 
positions of Second Vice-President of '09 and President of the 
Modern Language Club. We expect much of David, "being a Scotch 
man w ho was caught young. 


'•//i fighting the battle, thi question's whether 
You'll show a hat that's white, or a feather." 

John McLellan Swain was horn at Stratford. Out.. Oct. -. 1887. 
He received his early education at the public schools and Collegiate 
Institute of that city. In 1905 he took his Senior Leaving, and having 
no particular vocation in view decided upon an Arts course in Science 
at the University to see what results might follow. In his native 
town he has long been prominent in sports of all kinds, though he 
has taken only a small part in them in his college career. As an 
amateur baseball artist, "Mick" can be depended upon to do his 
share, and few can do it better. 



"Stuart" was born in L886, near Brockvillo. and received his 
early education in the public school and Collegiate Institute there. 
Matriculating in 1903 with a scholarship he came down to the 
University and entered the class of '117. registering in Classics. In 
his second year he went West, but returned a year later. In his 
course he has always been a brilliant student and holds the Presidency 
of the Classical Association. His quiet, thoroughgoing manner has 
always impressed those with whom he has associated that he is every 
inch a man. with great capabilities tor success, and his friends have 
every confidence that his efforts in the future will reflect credit both 
on himself ami his Alma Mater.

Archie made his debut into this world of labors in '88. He 
developed staunchness of character and persistency of purpose as a 
boy on the farm, and as a pupil in Mitchell High School. He exposed 
his tightly-gripped ideas of "life" and "religion,'' derived from 
influences of "Home" and "Kirk," to the critical examination of 
Philosophical and Oriental study with the class of 'nit, standing 
high in both courses. He figured on the Y.M.C.A. and Philosophical 
Society Executives. Oriental study has secured for him a substitute 
fur what Philosophy has taken away, and a three years' course in 
Knox College will turn nut a "John Knox" of the 20th century.

Toronto University with the class of 'Hit and took History and 
English and Teutonics for three years. In her fourth year she con- 
centrated on History and English. She was an enthusiastic member 
of the Athletic Society and active in the dramatic work of the College. 
Her summers were occupied with teaching in the small prairie schools 
of the West, where she became imbued with an insatiable love lor 
their vast expanse. Her ambitions were those of attaining the

Whether it is nobler in the mind to suffer

Or to be elected to this damn'd position

To earn no thanks but hate, aye, there's the rub:

Than bear the Parli'ment's dread rage.

in October, 1888. Finding the climate too severe. ''Algy'' travelled 
westward and settled in Vancouver. This city, however, did not 
satisfy his restless soul, and for this reason we find him in Ottawa, 
attending the Collegiate Institute, from which he matriculated in 
L905, entering Varsity as a member of the (lass of '09 B. and 1'. 
Algy 's merits were soon discovered and he was elected to the Class

"Doe" was born in Toronto in 1888. After being "Head Boy" 
at both the Model School and St. Andrew's College, he came down 
to Varsity in 1906, with an Honor Matriculation certificate, and 
entered '09 as a sophomore. A friend — but not a slave — of books, 
he has made the most of his course in Arts, for, besides being a 
First-Class Honor man all through, he has been a member of his 
Class Executive, of the Arts' Dance and Dinner Committees, and of 
the English Literature Club, Vice-President of the Historical Club, 
Editor-in-Chief of Torontonensis, and a member of the XIII. Club. 



' ' Cogito ergo sum. ' ' 
In the year of grace, 1884, "a lad o' pairts" was born — and they 
named him John Milford Wyatt. Having imbibed all the learning 
that Springbank could offer, Milford journeyed to Strathroy, from 
which Collegiate he emerged triumphant, with his cheerful smile and 
Senior Matriculation certificate. For the next three years he success- 
fully instructed the young, but the early hankering after knowledge 
was not yet satisfied, so, with characteristic wisdom, he came to 
Toronto. Thus '09 gained a great philosopher. The McDonald 
Scholarship in 1908, President of the Philosophical Society and Inter- 
university Debater in 1909, these indicate his ability and sterling 
worth. '09 has all confidence in him and he goes forth with every 
good wish.

Reynold Young was born in Wentworth county on October 4th, 
1886. Hit- early training was received on the farm and at P. S. 
No. 3, from which his aspirations for greater knowledge led him 
to Hamilton Collegiate Institute. At the matriculation examination 
he received a scholarship, which turned his footsteps to his present 
field of labors, where his course has been marked with success both 
as student and sharpshooter of the Rifle Association. Reynold's 
hobby is Astronomy, and if old beliefs count for anything, may the 
stars always exert a benign influence over the career of him who 
watches them so diligently. 



''Formed for deeds of high resolve." 
Abraham Granatstein was born in Poland in 1887. His parents 
emigrated from Poland in 1895, settling in Toronto. Here little 
' ' Granny ' ' attended the public school, and then turned his attention 
to business, entering as clerk in a lawyer 's office. It was here that 
he discovered what a lucrative profession ' ' Law ' ' is, and forthwith 
decided to imitate his master. By diligent study at the Meisterschaft 
School, and during spare hours at home, he attained sufficient 
scholarly wisdom to enter with '09. During his undergraduate course 
Granny has made many friends, who wish him every success in the 
profession he has embarked upon.

"Carpe Diem" 

THE world's a stage, they tell us, and no doubt they tell us true, 
Yet all of us are glad we're here to watch the play go through, 
For all of us are actors in the comedy sublime, 
With the universe for setting and eternity for time, 
And the changing scene 
From springtime's green 
To autumn's red and gold 
Is old as the beginning, yet new as the buds unfold. 

Tis splendid sport in the morning to play mid the dewy flowers, 
A strong man's work at noontide, and through the cloudless hours, 
Until the sunset glory puts an end to what's begun, 
And the drama has its curtain at the setting of the sun. 

And what is due 

To me and you 
When all the play is done 
But just to be forever what the actor has become. 

Though there are scornful critics with no pleasure in the play, 
Who call the show a poor one, we're glad we're here to-day. 
Just to live is plenteous rapture, e'en in watching wonder dwells, 
And we turn us from the critic to the jester with his bells ; 

For a song of mirth 

Is worth to earth 
A thousand strains of woe, 
And a cheerful heart's the highest good the fates on man bestow.

Little wonder that the sophomores, who could not look 
upon this class without closing their eyes, had some qualms 
about the Bob. The freshmen good-humoredly undertook 
to help them, however ; persuaded the faculty that a Hob 
was necessary, and then furnished the material from which 
the scenes were written. \n fact, nothing was left to the

This function over, and the second year appearing to 
be completely exhausted, the Naught-Niners were forced, 
for the remainder of the year, to furnish their own excite- 
ment. Innumerable class meetings, tappings, and other 
schemes for which the class of Naught-Nine is peculiar, were 
resorted to, and that they succeeded is evidenced by the 
testimony of Robert, "They seemed to forget that there

found themselves confronted witli a. task the xrvy thoughts 
of which would have appalled a less heroic and able body. 
Freshmen, their numbers excelled only by their backwoods- 
ical proclivities, simply haunted the place. So apparent 
were their failings thai absolutely no research was neces- 
sary, and. in spite of the difficulty the refined members 

of Naught-Nine experienced in impersonating such awful 
verdure, a Bob, the like of which has never been seen, 
was a thing of history in less than two weeks. 

Bu1 one application, thorough as it was. proved insuffi- 
cient to wholly crush the folly of this tribe. The men of 
1910, tilled to overflowing with ingratitude, rose in revolt 
against a few sophomores who had kindly consented to aid 
them in a class meeting. Swelled with unexampled bravery 
and cheered on to deeds of valiance by the freshettes, who. 
despite repeated doses of onions, were still rebellious, their 
paltry sixty rushed into the midst of the four stalwart 
sophs., and. after a displayal of much heroism in dragging 
their enemies feet-first down two flights of stone steps, 
finally succeeded in tapping them. Naught-Nine, however, 
had their hair but not their ardor damped, and. the fol- 
lowing morning, the freshmen were taught, in a way that 
they have never forgotten, that retribution is swift and 
certain. "It was a famous victory." 

Naught-Nine, with their halo ever increasing, and with 
their characteristic disregard for conventionalities, deter- 
mined that in their case the third year should not be one 
of inactivity. The gentlemen of the year were most loyally 
entertained by the lady members at Annesley Hall. Shortly 
afterwards, the class, one of its constituents having won 
the oration contest, feeling that it was a shame to keep 
such talent as theirs hidden from the outside world, jour- 
neyed to a neighboring city and gave such a concert "as 
is seldom heard outside of Massey Hall." Thus did this 
memorable class, in "stunts" so numerous that this volume 
would be inadequate for their mere mention, live up to 
their motto: "Don't let your studies interfere with your 
regular college work. " 

The fourth year has been but a continuation of successes 
unsurpassed in history. Increased skating, alley and tennis 
accommodation all go to show that "Hora Hoste" and 
progress are synonomous terms. Robert maintains that 
there never was a class made such forward strides, and 
historians agree that, one hundred years from now. that 
dignitary will be reflecting, "Them was the good old days."

Annesley Hall 

IN the year 1896 the will of the late Hart A. Massey 
I bequeathed to the Board of Regents of Victoria Uni- 
versity the handsome sum of $50,000 to erect a residence 
for the women attending Victoria College. Further sub- 
scriptions were obtained and when the land in Queen's 
Park, behind Victoria College, became available it was 
selected and bought as the most suitable place for the 
intended building. The gift first bequeathed has been 
generously supplemented by the executors of the Massey 
Estate, and many other liberal friends have contributed 
to the furnishings. On October 1st. 1903, the Hall was 
completed and was opened to receive its students. 

The cost of the building' was approximately $70,000, 
and the expense of furnishing was undertaken by the 
Victoria Women's Residence and Educational Association. 
Under the leadership of the late Mrs. Geo. A. Cox the 
matter was laid before the .Methodist churches of the 
Dominion, from which many sympathetic responses were 
received. The Association, however, will always lie espe- 
cially indebted to friends in Toronto, who furnished all 
the rooms on the ground floor. The officers are appointed 
by the Board of Regents of Victoria College. 

Special attention is paid to physical training, for which 
tine provision has been made. There is a well-equipped, 
spacious gymnasium, where the best of instruction is given. 
Every student is examined each year by a physician and 
is assigned the kind of exercises she needs. In case of 
illness, students are removed to a bright and pleasant 
infirmary ward, where there is found complete isolation. 

Annesley llall accommodates fifty-eight students. With 
the increasing number of women students at Victoria, the 
applications for residence so far exceeded its capacity that 
a second house, now called South Hall, was opened in 
September, 1906. 11 had formerly been a private residence 
situated on the southwest corner of Victoria College 
grounds. This year every room is occupied and thus Vic- 
toria College is enabled to offer the privilege of residence 
to eighty-one students, sixty-six of whom are full under- 
graduates of the College. 

Annesley Hall is a well-ordered institution where the 
needs and rights of the whole household must be considered 
and respected by each individual. During the last six 
years two hundred and twenty-five women students have 
made it their home.

"His soul was like a star, which dwelt apart.'' 

Cleveland Garfield Allin at present looks upon Windsor as his 
home town. The moving ministerial household, of which Cleve. is a 
member, necessitated dividing his preparatory education between 
Goderich and Parkhill. Coming to Victoria he has shown himself 
;i diligent and successful student in Chemistry and Mineralogy, the 
only drawback to such a course being that his "school hours'' have 
been confined too much to the Chemistry Building across the park. 
We make im prophecies concerning C. G. We are quite content to 
let the future take care of itself. 



"Policy of mind. Ability in means and choice of friends." 

A deep draught from the Pierian Spring of Aylmer Collegiate 
prepared Jesse for five years' conflict with the hosts of ignorance, in 
schoolroom and western mission field. Then, as a sophomore, becom- 
ing a welcome recruit of Naughty-Nine, lie entered into college 
activities with a zest that has won for him positions on Acta Board 
and the Literary Executive, of which he is now President. On 
Class Executive, in debate and ill poet's corner he has served his year. 
An ardent supporter of the General Course, several prizes are trophies 
of his May-time prowess, while in the class lists he has twice stood 
without a peer. We predict for Jesse a brilliant and useful career 
in his chosen field of labor — the mission field — at home or abroad. 


"When he's among boys, he's a boy; 
When lie's among men, he's a man.'' 

Harold Wilson Avison was born in Toronto. After attending 
Oshawa Collegiate, teaching two years and completing his probation 
as a candidate for the ministry, he entered Vic. in the fall of '06 
as a sophomore. In addition to his good record as a student Hal 
has taken an active interest in all departments of college life, espec- 
ially in the Y.M.C.A. and Glee Club, of which he is the honored 
President this year; besides being a member of the Conversazione 
Committee and President of '09. Possessed of good judgment, warm 
sympathy and quiet humor, Hal. will be a power in the pulpit and 
councils of the Methodist Church. 



"He hath no thought of coming woes." 

Morrisburg was the home of the family of Bakers 
And Roy was brought up on the paternal acres. 
To school he was sent, in his studies he shone. 
And when he got through he was nearly a " mon. ' ' 
To Toronto he came, to learn he did love; 
He studied with zeal the heavens above. 
In hockey and soccer he captained '('9, 
In each one he knew every trick and design. 
So here's to old Baker, who's always a sport. 
Wherever vou meet him vou '11 find a good sort.

"The light of love, the purity of grace, 
The mind, the music breathing from her face." 

Caroline Muriel Birnie matriculated with honors from Collingwood 
Collegiate Institute. Entering Victoria College in 1905 she chose 
Moderns as her course, in which she has always taken a high standing, 
winning the Webster English prize in her second year. With her 
capability and originality she has proved an invaluable helper to 
the various college societies and to her class. In her fourth year 
she held the positions of Class Historian and! Torontonensis Repre- 
sentative. An unusual breadth of character and an innate sympathy 
with nature and mankind are hers. With her sunny disposition and 
merrv laughter she has won the hearts of many of her fellow students. 



"1 will what I will, and there an end." 

Miss Luella Broad matriculated with honors from the Picton 
High School and spent one year at the Lindsay Collegiate. In the 
autumn of 1904 she entered Victoria College, choosing Moderns for 
her course. Miss Broad proved a faithful student, but owing to 
ill-health she was obliged to return in her third year to her home in 
Wellington. She showed her characteristic perseverance, however, by 
returning to college and entering at Christmas with the class of '09 
in the term '07-08. Since then Miss Broad has taken up the 
standard of Naughty-Nine as though she had known no other. 


With a zeal for helping the human race, with varied attainments, 
and an extensive experience of the ways of men, George came to 
Victoria with good old '07. He spent two years in exploring the 
mysteries of ' ' Orientals. ' ' He made many friends and was honored 
with several class offices. In 1905 the call from the West came, and 
he took a pastorate in Alberta — and a wife to cheer the loneliness 
of a prairie circuit. Two years later he returned, bringing back 
a fortune — a bright-eyed son. Resuming his course, he gets his 
honors with '09. George has always been a ' ' helper, ' ' and many 
troubled souls were tendered good advice and sympathy during his 
college course. He will continue "making the path smooth," perhaps 
in the foreign field. 



"A violet by a mossy stone, 
Half hidden from the eye! — 
Fair as a star. ' ' 

Alice Brooke Chubb was born in King township and, having 
lived in Toronto and Cleveland for some years, she took up her 
Collegiate studies in Toronto Junction, whence she came to Victoria 
College. She entered in the Household 1 Science course, but soon 
decided to be a Modern girl, and wisely so, for she has proven her 
capabilities in the line of Modern Languages. Alice won the Massey 
Bursary prize, for two terms she has been Class Treasurer, and has 
shown her agility on the rink. She is a faithful student, a never- 
changing friend, and has evinced the qualities of true college spirit.

Miss (lark claims Merrickville as her home town. She entered 
college from Kemptville High School with a scholarship in Science. 

She has always done exceptionally well in her courses — Moderns, ami 

English and History — and in her third year took the Moderns scholar- 
ship. Miss Clark has been active in the Literary Society, having 
been on the Inter year and [nter-collegiate Debates, and also on the 
Executive of the society. In her final year she had the honor of 
Carrying the senior stick. She has shown her all-roundness by the 
part she has taken in the sports and social life of the college, and 

not the least important part of her college life has been the friend- 
ships she has won.

"Forward, forward let us range." 

George Alton ('line was born at Appleby, -Inly 19th, 1888. 
Whether it was his own natural inclination to work, or the general 
air of business which surrounds this huge metropolis, he fell into 
line early attending Appleby Public School and then Hamilton 
Collegiate Institute, where he not only distinguished himself in his 
studies but entered the militia, being now a lieutenant in the 20th 
"Lome Rifles." Having, however, an undying love for Physics, he 
came to Varsity, where he 1ms taken a high stand throughout his 
course. Whatever hi' begins, we may rely upon it. will be done well. 



After seeing how little he could learn in Athens High School, he 
followed in the footsteps of his brother "Hill'* and entered - ' Vic. " 
with the class of '08. The General ('nurse absorbed all his energy 
during his first year, but in his second ambition demanded him 
entering B. and P. with '(lit. Despite his heavy course, he has taken 
an active interest in all phases of college life. As member of the 
Hob Committee. Premier of the "Lit.," and Treasurer of the Athletic 

Union, he has proven himself a willing and capable man. and it has 

even been whispered that lie has attended Y.M.I '.A. In his chosen 
profession of Medicine we phophesy a noble career and perhaps the 

best laurel we can lay upon his brow is tins. "Whatsoever of success 
may be his. he will deserve it. ' ' 




"He has a work, a life purpose; 
He has found it and will follow it." 
He was born at the Hub and his Collegiate work was taken at 
Parkdale, where he held the coveted office of Captain of the Cadet 
Corps. After a year in McMaster University, completed with Honors 
in Biology, having a love for the "Socratic method,'' he entered 
the B. and P. course. During his four undergraduate years he has 
done well, both for himself and for the University, in the field of 
athletics, by application of the principle of "Whatsoever thou doest. 
do it with all thy might. ' ' He has made many friends who feel 
sure that he has a great future before him in the field of Medicine. 


"She shall hi- sport ire as tin fawn, 

That wild with glee across the lawn, 

Or up tin- mountain springs." 
Frances Anne Millicent Crane was a student at the Montreal 
High School, but matriculated from Stanstead College, which she 
attended for two years. Coming to Toronto to register at Victoria 
College with the class of 1909, Miss Crane chose the "all-round 
education'' course, where her work has been everything desirable. 
All phases of college life have received her attention but she will 
perhaps be remembered chiefly in connection with the Athletic 
Association, in which she has held the positions of Secretary-Treasurer 
and Captain of the Women's Hockey Team. Miss Crane's attractive 
personality, her frankness and fun-loving disposition, have endeared 
her to manv friends, among whom she will not soon lie forgotten. 


"For when with beauty we can virtue join, 
lie paint the semblance of a point divine." 

Olive was born in Pembroke, where she received her public and 
high school education. Upon entering college, she, along with a few 
other well-thinking students, registered in the General Course, in 
addition to this course she has taken high standing in Honor History. 
Olive has been an active member of the Literary Society and of the 
Young Women's Christian Association and has also been on the 
Executive of her class, having acted as Treasurer in her third year. 
Her ever cheerful counterance and willingness to oblige have made 
an everlasting print on the memory of those who have known her. 


"She does little kindnesses that most leave undone or else despise." 

Lexa Denne was born in Peterborough and there received her 
public and high school education. She matriculated in 1905 and 
entered Victoria with the class of 1909. She chose the Household 
Science course and during her four years at college has made good 
use of the scientific knowledge of her work, always willing to help 
her less experienced friends. Lexa has taken an active interest in 
athletics, playing on the College Hockey Team and being on the 
Executive of the Athletic Club for the past three years as Captain 
(if the Basketball Team. All through her course she has done a great 
deal of committee work, both for the Y.W.C.A. and the Women 's 
Literary Society. She is a member of Xi Zeta Gamma.

"Sincerity is disclosed in little things as well as great." 
George began his career in the village of Scarboro Junction, and 
there received his initial education. Like others bearing the same 
name he was early endued with the spirit for higher learning and 
entered Victoria with the class of '08. But leaving at Christmas, he 
threw in his lot with '09 the following year. His manly character 
and genial disposition have won for him a lasting place not only 
in college circles but also with ' ' many connections ' ' elsewhere. The 
faithful, diligent work which has characterized him as a student 
will prove a valuable asset in his chosen calling — the ministry — so 
that a bright and useful future is predicted for him. 



"A merrier titan 

Within the limit of becoming mirth 
I never spent an hour's talk' withal." 
The subject of this biography began to "laugh and grow fat" 
at Watford, Ont., away back in the early eighties, and has been 
doing both ever since. After enlivening the ordinary routine of work 
at Watford High School he spent three years in teaching young 
Canadians the logic of fun, and two more in expounding the gospel 
of good cheer at Sombra and Florence. Since he joined '09 in their 
sophomore year Arthur has been the Falstaff of the class and his 
stories, jokes and merry laugh have beguiled many an otherwise 
weary hour. In his sober moments he has been able to annex the 
required amount of "book learning" and to serve his year as a 
successful debater and Vice-President of "Lit." May his shadow 
never grow less! 


"A sweet heart-lifting cheerfulness 

Seem'd ever <n< her steps to wait." 
Jessie Evelyn Drew comes from the land of great mountains, and 
a certain mountain charm and breeziness, characteristic of the land, 
seem to radiate from her. She matriculated with honors in 1904 
from Columbian College, Westminster, taking her first year in 
Moderns there, and entered Victoria College in her second year. She 
entered into college life with loyalty and energy. She has served 
on her Class Executive ana held, in her third year, the position as 
pianist of the Women 's Literary Society. Her cheerfulness of dis- 
position and willingness "to discourse sweet music" have made her 
a favorite. Although she frequently pines for the mountain zephyrs 
she seems appreciative of our winter sports, especially skating. 



" In action faithful, and in soul sincere." 
Miss Carrie Beatrice Dunnett attended high school at Colborne 
and, after matriculation, entered University in the English and 
History course. During her four years at Victoria she showed 
unusual ability in whatever work she undertook, succeeded in winning 
several prizes, and proved herself in every way a valued member of 
Naught-Nine. Various offices in the different college associations 
were ably filled by Miss Dunnett, and in her last year she had the 
distinction of being made one of the Literary Editors of Acta 
Victoriana. In debating her ability was not lacking, and as Class 
Poetess a unique honor was conferred upon her. Miss Dunnett 's 
practical judgment, together with her ready sympathy and humor, 
won for her many friends. 




Eugh Percy Edge having absorbed all that the Owen Sound 
Collegiate could teach him, entered Victoria in the second year. 
"Pete's" original intention was to y;o in for Medicine at the end 
lit' tlic year, but so attractive did college associations prove to l>e 
that he decided to first graduate in Arts. "Don't let your studies 
interfere with the regular college work" is one of Pete's principles, 

hut this is abandoned during the rry month of April, and his good 

standing in the General Course proves this brief season of "plugging" 
to be ample. Around the college "Pete" always has a wide smile 
and a joke for all, ami we venture to say that no one will leave 
Victoria with a wider circle of friends. 



''Sin saw, and strovt to reach Hn height 
Thai lives forever in the light." 

Rebecca Verner Fleming is one of the '09 students in Household 
Science. Reba. cast in her lot with '09 at the beginning of her 
second year, after being oul of college for two years. Her untiring 
energy and ] uliar ability have won for her a most creditable stand 

not only in her academic work lint also in the various College societies. 

Especially on the 5T.W.C.A. Executive, in her fourth year, has Miss 

Fleming's work 1 □ much appreciated. Only those who know her 

I ust can fully appreciate the unselfish disposition which has made her 
influence so great and so beneficial around college halls. 


"She with nil the charm of woman, 
She with all tin breadth of man." 

Clara Eleanor (lermi-n took her preparatory training at the London 
Collegiate Institute and Ontario Ladies' College, entering with '09 
in their second college year, she identified herself at once with all 
the college activities. A clever ami painstaking student, she has 
always ranked high in her course, the General. In the Literary 
Society she has debated in the Inter-college and Inter-year Series 
and served on the Executive. She has been particularly interested 
in Y.W.C.A. and missionary effort and has done efficient service on 
the College and Federal Executives. Her deep moral earnestness and 
cheerful, wholesome philosophy of life and conduct cannot have failed 
to make their influence felt.

Grace Isabel Grange is the fourth of her family to graduate from 
the University, and during her course has shown herself worthy of 
her name, by adding her full share to the prestige that a college gains 
from its undergraduates. She obtained her matriculation at the 
Napanee Collegiate Institute and entered 1909 in the English and 
History Course. Her interests in college have been diversified, but 
specially has she taken an active part in the Athletic Association. 
Her classmates have found her ready and capable in everything they 
have given her to do, ami her unbounded enthusiasm has carried all 
that she has undertaken to a successful conclusion. She is a member 
of Xi Zeta Gamma. 



''A right merry companion, and withal a gentleman." 

Joseph was born on "Prospect Hill" Farm, Bruce county, where 
the beautiful surroundings lent much to his lively appreciation of 
nature, and to the broad outlook on life which characterizes him. 
He received his early education at Walkerton High School. The 
following three years he spent as bookkeeper with ''The U. S. Steel 
Trust Co.,'' Sharon, Pa. A noble purpose led him into the ministry.

falgar and Xorval, "Jos'' entered "Vic." and registered in Honor 
Philosophy. His genial and exuberant spirit and his loyal sympathetic 
nature have won for him many staunch friends.

''After all. the kind of world one carries about in one's self is tin 
most important thing." 

Reuben came into being on Yonge Street, near the Poor House, 
and its alluring influence must still be strong, as Newmarket is his 
home address. He matriculated from Newmarket High School in 

"A farmer by birth and a Reuben by name. 
At Vic. he gets there just the same." 

In stature ami perseverance he is said to resemble Lord Roberts. 
In tennis, in debate, or in examination, hi' has shown that enthusiasm 
which guarantees ultimate success. He has already done good work 
in Honor Semitics and is expected to do that department credit 
next May. 




" Her heart was in her work and th< heart giveth graci into every art." 

Born in London township, Miss Hayes received her early education 
in Lucan High School. Here, in 1905, she obtained Senior Leaving 
standing with Honors. The following autumn she entered Victoria 

College, enrolling in the Biological and Physical Science course, 
where, despite her weakness for the rink and "things lighter," she 
has always maintained her place among the foremost of her class. 
During her course. Ethel has served on the Medico Literary Executive 
and by her quiet, independent disposition has won the love and 
respect 'it' her colleagues, who predict a brilliant future for her.

Andrew Chester Haynes comes from Wellburn, in Middlesex 
county. He attended the Collegiate Institute at St. Marys and then 
for three years made a practical application of this training in 
teaching school. Then he preached for two years. In 1905 he 
came to Victoria College, where he has pursued the General Course 
in Arts. To this he has added musical accomplishments. Andie 
is generous in spirit and merry of heart, and his jovial nature. 
infectious with cheerfulness, proves an antidote to "the blues." 



"That which they havt dom but earnest 
Of tin things that they shall tin." 

Ivan was born in London township and received his preparatory 
education at Lucan High School. Here in his senior year lie became 
President of the Literary Society and was famed for his "learned 
speeches." His youthful appreciation of things scientific and literary 
led him to Toronto iii the fall of L905, where he entered Victoria 
College, registering in the Biological and Physical Science course. 

In this he has since taken a very creditable standing. Despite his 
solemn mien, his nature responds to quiet humor and his friends 
feel that he is primarily a leader of men, 



" 'lis tin best, 

So 'tis must hard to b< at. 

Having complete,! his matriculation in Aylmer High School, "Si" 
entered Victoria College in the General Arts course. He has through- 
out shown the happy faculty of mingling work and pleasure in 
precisely the right proportion. That "Si's" executive ability is 
appreciated by the College is shown in his being placed in charge 
of the finances of various college committees, and there is no doubt 
that along this line he will prove his worth in business life. He 
does not "win'' or "make" friends, he just naturally has them, ami, 
unlike most affable men, "Si"' is liked best by those who know him 
best. It's a friendship that doesn't wear out.

.Miss Cora Hewitt, after matriculating at Owen Sound Collegiate 
Institute, came to Victoria in 1905 and registered in Moderns and 
'History. With her characteristic broadmindedness she refused to 
restrict herself to the pursuit of sound learning and gave active 
support to all the college societies. In her second and third years 
she served on the Executive of the Y.W.C.A., of which in her senior 
year she became President. Miss Hewitt brought from her parsonage 
home an atmosphere of cheerful serenity which was always perceptible 
in her presence. Her sympathy and her sense of humor have aided 
in giving her a unique place in the hearts of all who know her.

she has been a member of the Executive of '09. In 1907 she was 
sent as a delegate to the Y.W.C.A. Convention at .Montreal. While 
devoting herself heartily to her studies, she has not neglected the 
social side of her education, and has the enviable record of having 
missed only two receptions in her whole course.

The 5T.W.C.A., the Literary Society and the Athletic Club received 
her hearty support ami she could be relied on to do her share in the 
work of these organizations. The esteem iii which she is held by 

In r class was proved by its giving her the offit f Vice-President.

loyalty in friendship and her thoroughness in everything she under- 
takes to do, will win success for her in after life. 



' • I' oh n.s i I Potcns." 
Ernie was born in Victoria county. Upon completion of courses 
of study in the public school and Lindsay Collegiate Institute, he 
undertook to teach rudiments of knowledge to the youth of his 
native county. Finding this uncongenial lie preached in Hastings 
and Haliburton counties as a probationer in the Ray of Quinte 
Conference. In 1905 "his father sent him to Victoria," where his 
genial disposition and steady application to his studies has won for 
him the respect and admiration of the whole student body of his 

Alma Mater. During his college course he has 1 n a winner of 

the "Massev Bursary," Treasurer of the Missionary Society and for 
three years has successfully impersonated Robert, Victoria's time- 
honored janitor, at the ''Hob.'' 




"Yet should thy soul indulge the gen'rous heat, 
Till captive science yields her last retreat." 

James E. Horning, the son of our esteemed professor, was born 
in Peterborough. In his childhood years he accompanied his parents 
to Germany, speaking then the foreign language more fluently than 
English. Returning to Canada, he spent his schoolboy and collegiate 
days in Cobourg. Matriculating in 1905, he won the West Durham 
Proficiency Scholarship, and came to the University, being registered 
in Mathematics and Physics and English and History, with Moderns 
option, in the latter of which he graduates. In his freshman year 
he was Secretary-Treasurer of his class, and in his senior year 
Scientific Editor of Acta Victoriana. After graduation he intends 
to follow scientific studies, eventually adding C.E. and E.E. to his 



"Kind hearts are more than coronets." 

Walter gained his scholastic preparation for college at Elora, Ont. 
To this, however, he added some years of experience in the pulpit. 
He came to Victoria in 1905, entering the Philosophy Course. His 
diligence in his work and his interest in college activities secured 
for him the Vice-Presidency of his class in his third year. The 
good-humor and kindly disposition that lie beneath the unassuming 
exterior promise for Walter a successful career in the life of service 
to which he has devoted himself. 


"Nothing tovelier can be found in woman 
Than U> study household good." 
Irene hails from Whitby, a town noted for its output of feminine 
wisdom. Entering Victoria in 1904, her aim was to soar in the realm 
of Classics. For this characteristically modern girl, however, the 
past must make way for the present, and the following year the 
call of Household Science, that conserver of domestic felicity, could 
not be withstood. Consequently she now blossoms forth an expert 
in the culinary art. When we mention that she has been a member 
of the Class Executive, is a reader of repute, an adept at tennis and 
always in demand at social functions, we but pay tribute to her 
notable versatility and her wide popularity. 



''He's gentle anil not fearful.'' 
E. C. James is one of the sons of Lanark county, having been 
born in the town of Perth. Here he received his public school and 
Collegiate Institute training, and afterwards for two years he taught 
the rudiments of knowledge to the children of Carleton county. In 
1903 he entered Victoria College, then, after one year of academic 
work, he spent two years preaching in the Montreal Conference. 
Returning to the "Old Ontario Strand'' in 1906 he proceeded with 
the Honor Course in Philosophy. Though of retiring disposition, 
he has not failed to take part in the [nter-year Debates; and by 
those most intimate with him are his amiable qualities best appre- 
ciated. Elwood is a careful student' and we are confident of his 
future success. 



"The ae best fellow e'er was born." 
Walter certainly is a jolly good fellow. His genial nature, 
unruffled composure and readiness for a joke are among his best 
features. His early education was received at the Wiarton High 
School, where his fondness for mischief made the principal's life a 
weary burden. Coming to Vie., he entered the General Course, but 
the baneful influence of the star which appeared at his birth still 
pursued him. Perceiving the error of his ways, he chose the depart- 
ment of B. and P. in which to land honor. There is no narrowness 
aboul Walter (in stature or in outlook) for his interests outside of 
college are many, and in his future career as a medico we will find him 
''Sure of the fortieth spare armchair, 
When gout and j^lory seat him there." 



"Moderate tasks and modi rati leisure, 
"J'is for tins thy natnri yearns." 
The subject of this sketch first saw the light of day at Lucan 
and there imbibed his early knowledge. On completion of his Honor 
Matriculation he made haste to enter Varsity's time-honored walls. 
As he saw nothing better he cast in his lot with the B. and P. He 
should by no stretch of the imagination be considered a plugger, but 
still works consistently. Allan has been rather conservative in the 
social life at Vic., but when you get him in a reminiscent mood he is 
a delightful conversationalist. We predict for him a successful 
career and a life of genuine usefulness. 


"To friends a friend — how kind to all." 
Miss Knox comes to Victoria from the east. Her father being 
a Methodist minister, she has wandered over Eastern Ontario and 
Quebec, but her present home is Shanley. She received her high 
school education in Pembroke, matriculating in 1903. After teaching 
for two years she entered the class of '09 in January, 190fi. In 
spite of the disadvantages due to entering so late in the college year, 
she caught up with the class and has ever since obtained a high 
standing in English and History course. In her second year she 
upheld '09 in the Inter-year Debates and came out victorious. She 
has also held the office of Treasurer of the class and in her senior 
year she is Vice-President of the Women's Literary Society. 



"Lean enough to b( thought a good student." 
After receiving his preliminary education at Caledonia, he 
went to the Hamilton Collegiate, where he carried off the gold medal 
and entered Victoria College in the fall of 1905 with a first Edward 
Blake Scholarship in Science, lie enrolled ill the course of Chemistry 
and Mineralogy and has spent the golden hours of his youth amid 
the delightful odors of the laboratory, where he has uphold the honOI 
of his Alma Mater, taking each year a high place in First-Class 
Ilonors in his chosen course. Nor have the other phases of college 
life been neglected. During his four years he has been an enthusiastic 
supporter of the gymnasium and in his freshman and senior years 
he has been on the Executive of the Literary Society.

"None know thee but to love thee, 
None name thee but to praise." 
Grace W. Maclaren entered the University after graduating from 
Havergal. She chose Mathematics as her course, but differential 
equations and integral calculus were not the sole objects of her 
attention, although perforce they had an ample share. She entered 
enthusiastically into sports, society work and fun. In her first three 
years she was a member of V.C.A.C. She played in the Varsity 
and Inter-collegiate tennis tournaments throughout her course and 
was Inter-collegiate Champion in her third year and College Champion 
in her fourth year. In her senior year, in recognition of her executive 
ability and keen interest in athletics, Miss Maclaren was elected 
President of the V.C.A.C. and of the University of Toronto Women's 
Athletic League. She is a member of Xi Zeta Gamma. 


"In human nature still 
He found more good than ill." 
H. Gordon Manning began life in the village of Clarkson. His 
maturer nature led him to the choice of teaching as a profession, and 
he entered Vie. in 1905 to prepare for specialist work in English and 
History. But, though this was always the main purpose of his course, 
his activities were not confined to it alone, as is shown by his 
appointment to the "Bob," Conversat and Senior Dinner Committees, 
the Lit. Executive and similar offices. Still, because of his quiet, 
self-effacing manner, few have guessed the sure and trusty aid which 
all branches of our college life have received from him. 

McClelland, john Clifford. 

"His friendship has the features of his mind." 

John Clifford McClelland was born at Cannington, Ont., but his 
public school days were spent in Toronto. After some years of 
varied experience, Cliff, decided to further develop his intellectual 
capacity and straightway proceeded to Albert College, Belleville, 
where he completed Bis senior matriculation. He then spent two 
successful years in the Methodist ministry, after which he entered 
the class of '09 Victoria as a sophomore. Although Cliff, has rather 
a retiring disposition, yet he has won many friends at college and 
only those who know him best can fully appreciate his sterling 

Mckenzie, john vernon. 

"7s there a heart that music cannot melt?" 

.7. Vernon McKenzie, born in New York in 1887, came early to 
Toronto. Having undergone the customary process of being educated, 
Mac. spent a year or two in reportorial work in San Francisco, and 
then, determined on a journalistic career, entered Victoria for 
further preparation. " Book-larnin' " may have been Mac's main 
motive in coming to college, but he has shown himself by no means 
narrow-minded. He has been Secretary of the "Bob" Committee, 
a member of the rugby and alley teams and for three successive years 
Undergraduate Tennis Champion. As Athletic Editor, and then 
Editor-in-Chief, of Acta Victoriana, he has added many interesting 
features to his college magazine, and has again given earnest of 
a "telling" career with the pen.

Moore Armstrong Miller was christened in the fall of 1887, but 
he was re-christened "Pat. " when he registered at Vie. He has the 
distinction of being one of the few in the Political Science course 
never starred. Pat's prowess in athletics secured for him the Athletic 
Stick in his final year. He has served on the "Bob" and numerous 
other committees, on the Lit. and Y.M.C.A. Executives, and during 
the spring term of his third year had the honor of being President 
of his class. His nimble wit and keen repartee have always made 
him a favorite with both men and ladies. 



"A great soul .... strong to live as well as to think." 

— Emerson. 

Brockville claims the honor of Lloyd's birthplace, where, after 
receiving early education and business training, he came to "Vic- 
toria." '(19 soon found in Lloyd an excellent student. Possessed 
of a strong personality, a genuineness of character and superior 
executive ability, he lias been a leader in all departments of college 
life. In rugby or in alley, as a member of the Hockey Team or as 
['resident of the Athletic Union, as a member of his class or Y.M.C.A. 
Executive, or as a college debater, he has proven himself a man whom 
the college loves to honor. His warm hearted sympathy, combined 
with his gifts, "ill make him a success in the Christian ministry. 




"You're a but a first class fight in' man." 

Fritz was born in Campden, Ontario. At matriculation he 
captured an Edward Blake Scholarship in Classics and Moderns, 
and a Martha Bell Scholarship in Classics. Thus armed, he 
tackled the Classics course at Victoria and in his third year 
held the college scholarship. As to college work, what position 
has the belling-event Fritz left unassailed ? A member of the ' ' Bob ' ' 
Committee, Secretary of the Glee Club, Secretary and Leader of the 
Opposition in Lit., member of Students' Parliament, successful debater 
and champion orator — not to mention the scraps and tappings of 
three years; and this year he is travelling light as Inter-college 
Debater, College Eepresentative, member of Athletic Union and 
Business Manager of Acta. 


"Yon Cassius .has a Ian and hungry look." 
John Kent Ockley, burn in 1887, received such education as is 
essential to junior matriculation and then assumed the role of a 
bank clerk. Two years later, however, he decided to take a course 
in Political Science' at Victoria College. Though a consistent student, 
"Cassius,'' a name his six feet of thinness soon earned him. has 
been by no means niggardly with his talents, having done service as 
Treasurer of the "Hob" Committee, President of his year, and ill 
numerous other offices. He invariably wears "a smile you could 
see a mile" and has been duly popular, receiving in his fourth year 
the greatest honor his class could bestow upon him. the c 
•'Cassius" will enter business. 

Senior Stick. 


"She's gone like Alexander 
To spread her conquests farther." 
After brief sojourns in St. Marys and Montreal she became a 
resident of Toronto and matriculated from Harbord Street Collegiate. 
Entering college with '09 she chose the broad education of the Gen- 
eral Course. Her versatility has urged her into all paths of college 
life — she is known as an active worker in the Y.W.C.A., a leader of 
mission study classes, a member of the University Dramatic Club, 
and a frequent participant in all the gaieties of University life. Her 
proficiency in the vocal art has made her a welcome guest at all 
college gatherings. Her hospitality is unbounded and her unfailing 
courtesy and sweetness of disposition will long be remembered by 
her many friends. 



"A merry, light-hearted youth." 
"Nance" has all the good qualities which his name implies, and 
also some others usually attributed to Methodist ministers' sons. 
During his "triennial" roving life he strolled through the Durham 
High School and London Collegiate. After putting in three years 
along various lines (mainly that of the Great North-Western Tele- 
graph) he began the wearisome climb to honors in B. and P., pursuing 
his way with class '09 in his accustomed happy-go-lucky manner. 
That ' ' pleasure is more sweet than toil ' ' is noble, is evident in his 
judicious mingling of fun with work. His cheerful, buoyant dis- 
position has made him numerous friends, though he will doubtless 
part with many after he tacks the formidable M.D. on his name. 


"The 'way' will be found by a resolute 'Will'." 
"Will." was born at Goodwood (is of excellent timber). Received 
his public and high school education in Toronto. After matriculating 
from Parkdale Collegiate Institute he obeyed the summons, ' ' Go 
West, young man." Engaging in newspaper and ministerial labors, 
he enlightened his fellows. In 1905, his acquired supply of knowledge 
exhausted, he came to Vic. to restock. During his Arts course he has 
also written off his Theology and completes both courses together. 
His ability and industry is also attested by his success in winning 
the Massey Bursary Prize. For two years he was an active member 
of the Glee Club. His friendly disposition combined with his sterling 
worth warrant to him a useful and successful career. 



"A true and brave and downright honest man." 
He was born in the Methodist parsonage, Georgetown. Though 
deaf from infancy, he has accomplished 

' ' What others talked of, while their hands were still. ' ' 
He attended the Ontario School for the Deaf, Drayton Public School, 
and Fergus High School. Entering Victoria College in 1905, he has 
successfully pursued the Political Science course. He also carries 
on a printing business. He is held in esteem by his college associates, 
is a leading member of the Toronto and Ontario Mission to the Deaf, 
and holds the Presidency of the Ontario Association of the Deaf — 
the highest honor in the gift of the deaf in Canada. He is looking 
forward to printing or journalism as his future occupation. 



Stag Night— Gymnasium— Thursday, January 14TH, 1909. 



"He'll not barter truth to serve the hour." 
Peaceful Port Dover, Ont., prides itself on being the birthplace 
of Harry. A fondness for academic learning and a desire to equip 
himself to play his part in the varied roles of life led him to seek 
the collegiate halls of his native town. After exhausting the curricu- 
lum there he entered Varsity with '09, and knowing the best is none 
too good he chose the Honor Course in Medicine (B. and P.). Though 
registered at Victoria, he has sunk his college preference by taking 
an active interest in the social life of Varsity as a whole. His 
diligence, both in the classroom and out, has rewarded him with 
an enviable position in the class records, striking a high level and 
maintaining it throughout his course. A personal magnetism and 
an exemplary character have won him a warm place in the esteem 
of all college students. 



"She teas good as she was fair. 
To Tcnow In r was to love her." 

Ada Smith received her preparatory education at Barrie and 
entered Victoria College with the class of '09 as a student of Modern 
Languages. With genuine college spirit Ada has ever remained true 
to her chosen course, in which she has shown her efficiency. Her 
interests have not only been academic, but every phase of college 
life has received its share of her interest and attention. She has 
been Secretary of Y.W.C.A. and Representative on the Athletic 
Executive. Her ability as a debater has been displayed on two 
occasions, once in an Inter-collegiate Debate. Her amiable disposi- 
tion has won many friends for her, who will watch with interest her 


"For she is wise if I can judge of her, 
Ami fair she is if that mine eyes be true." 
Norah is not direct from the " ould sod" in spite of her Irish 
name and characteristics. Toronto was her birthplace and is still 
her home. Receiving her preparatory education in Church Street 
School and Jarvis Street Collegiate, she entered Victoria with the 
class of '09, and is enrolled among the General Course students. 
During her course Miss Spenee has proved herself an all-round college 
girl, taking an active interest in all sports and social functions, and 
ably assisting in the work of the various college societies. In her 
final year she is on the Athletic Association Executive and Vice- 
President of the Class. 



"She has never had a policy; 

She has simply tried to do 

What seemed best each day, 

As each day came." 
Ada E. Spencer came to the East from Victoria, B.C., to take 
her preparatory course at O. L. C, Whitby. After matriculation 
she came to Victoria College, registering in the General Course. 
She missed little that college had to offer, showing a keen enthusiasm 
in all branches of student life. Her splendid executive ability won 
her a place on many committees in the Y.W.C.A. and Literary Society. 
She was Captain of the Field Hockey Team and for three years 
played in the Inter-collegiate Tennis Tournament. In her final year 
she was President of the House Committee of Annesley Hall, a proof 
of the confidence in which she was ever held. She is a member of 
XI Zeta Gamma. 




"Bt leaves his friends to dignify them more." 
Milton joined the family procession in the Methodist parsonage 
:it Oil City, Ont. Academic training at Aylmer and Strathroy 
< ollegiates, seasoned by three years plying of the birch, furnished 
the equipment with which he joined the sophomores in their attack 
on the problems of Political Science in the fall of 1906. As student 
and college man his work has been done with the. maximum of 
efficiency and the minimum of display. The result has been high 
standing in exams., and splendid service as debater, Treasurer of 
the Lit., Literary Editor of Acta, College Representative and member 
iif the Undergraduates' Parliament. If clear-thinking, industry and 
good sense count for anything in Law or Journalism we shall hear 
of him again. 



"1 dun d<i all that may become a man, 
W'Iki da ris do more, is none." 
Iii the pretty little town of Arthur George spent his boyhood. 
Here lie came in contact with the greatest of teachers, "Nature, 
which has li it its uplifting influence upon his life. Here also he 
received the rudiments of his intellectual training, broadened by a 
three years' business life. Bui owing to a strong desire to benefit 
mankind, he came to Victoria, where he tarried one year. After an 
absence of two years as probationer on Erin and Varney Circuits, he 
again entered College in the class of 'ii'.), pursuing tin' course of Honor 
Philosophy. His active pari in ''Lit.,'' in class affairs, and in the 
Glee Club, as well as his cheerful and sympathetic nature, has made 
for "(leu." many staunch friends. We anticipate for him a success- 
ful career in his chosen profession. 


t •-'■-' 

"Her heart is warm, benevolent and kind." 

Myrtle Helena Stevens received her preparatory education in 
Napanee, graduating from its Collegiate Institute with honors in 
her favorite course, Classics. In 1905 she came to Varsity to pursue 
a deeper study of the ancients. But Greek and Latin have not entirely 
engrossed her attention. Especially has she made the Y.W.C.A. the 
sphere of her widest activity, as a mission study leader, and the 
membership convener in her final year. And on her Class Executive 
she holds the position of ''Prophetess." By her sterling qualities 
Myrtle has endeared herself to all with whom she has come in contact, 
and carries with her the best wishes of '09. 



"Formed on tin good old plan, 
A true and brave and downright honest man." — Whittier. 

Teddy spent his early days in AValkerton. Having taught school 
and having completed his probation in the Hamilton Conference he 
entered ''Vic.'" in the fall of L905. His genial disposition soon won 
for him a place in the hearts of the college men. He was elected 
President of the "Bob" and in the third year his superior executive 
ability was demonstrated as Manager of the Glee Club, in which he 
has always been a leading tenor. Teddy is an excellent student and 
his sincere optimism, his bright and smiling Countenance and warm- 
heartlied sympathy will give him a prominent place in life's great 


"His life was gentle: and the elements so mixed in him that nature 
might stand up and say to all the world — ' This ivas a man.' " 

Thomas Richard Todd matriculated at Walkerton High School. 
Entering the ministry of the Methodist Church, he was first stationed 
at Arkwright, but the next two years found him at Guelph and 
Brantford. He chose Philosophy as his course at college. He has 
been President of his class, while on the "Conversazione," "Bob" 
and Senior Dinner Committees he has been found an efficient member. 
The Glee Club has been fortunate in having him as first bass. In 
the work of the ministry Tom. gives good promise of not only occupy- 
ing no mean place, but of being something more, a courteous, kindly- 
spirited, honorable gentleman. 



"Her softer charms, but by their influence known, 
Surprise all hearts and mould them to her oxen." 

The college town, Cobourg, ' ' on the old Ontario strand, ' ' was 
Muriel 's early home. Coming to Toronto she attended Harbord 
Collegiate, from which she matriculated. Miss Wallace entered 
college with the class of 1909. Her course has been Honor Moderns, 
in which she has done creditable work. She has held office as Corre- 
sponding Secretary of the Women 's Literary Society and also in 
the Cabinet of the Young Women 's Christian Association. She, too, 
is a member of Xi Zeta Gamma. As a girl of high ideals and kindly 
spirit she will be lovingly remembered by her many college friends. 




' ' She has wit and song and sense, 
Mirth and sport and eloquence." 

Miss Whitlam came to us from Parkdale Collegiate Institute, with 
Moderns as her chosen course. Miss Whitlam has taken her full share 
in every phase of college life, and that her marked executive ability 
and willingness to serve were fully appreciated is shown by the 
prominent positions she has held in the various college societies, being 
Vice-President of her year in the first year, Local Editor of Acta in 
her third and President of the Literary Society in her fourth. Her 
many gifts of mind and heart, her wit, brightness and gaiety, coupled 
with her unselfish spirit and the unfailing interest and sympathy 
she shows in all with whom she comes in contact, cannot fail to always 
win for her as sincere and lasting friendships as at college. 



"It matters not how long you live, but hoiv well." 

"Bill.," as he is affectionately called by his friends, was born in 
the village of Cedarville, and his early education was acquired in 
that vicinity. His Junior and Senior Matriculation were taken at 
Albert College. Entering Victoria in his second year with '07, he 
spent a year with them, and then two years preaching in the mining 
district of British Columbia. Here he won the admiration of the 
miners by his clever work on their football team, and their hearts 
by his sterling character. He re-entered Victoria with the class of 
'09 and graduates this year in the Philosophy Course. His prowess 
on the football field has earned him the position this last year of 
Captain of the soccer team. 

We stand for the last time together, 

Hand to hand, face to face, heart to heart ; 
A day may divide us for ever, 

We'll sing one more song ere we part. 
As friends, when the banquet, is ending, 

Stand closer to give one last cheer, 
So to-night let our voices, all blending, 

Ring out our last song, loud and clear. 

Not a bright flower-garland is faded. 

Every wine-cup with roses is drest : 
Not a face at the banquet is jaded 

The last of the feast is the best. 
Yet a shade falls across all the brightness 

From the wings of the hours flying past, 
Every heart feels a weight on its lightness, — 

The thought that the best is the last. 

Each rose is a vanishing pleasure 

Which memory plucks to enfold 
In her many-leaved book as a treasure 

More precious than jewels or gold. 
Long after its colour has perished. 

Long after its freshness has flown, 
The rose for its fragrance is cherished, 

To tell of the days that are gone. 

Here's a health to the hours departed, — 

Farewell to our glad college years ! 
Here's a health to the future, light-hearted, 

We greet it with hope, not with fears. 
One more, — 'tis the last ere we sever, 

Each voice in the chorus rings free ; 
Our College ! — we'll love her for ever, — 

Here's a health, Alma Mater, to thee.

Trinity College from the Southwest 


Trinity Class '09 

A year generally prides itself on the 

possession of some particular excel- 
lence and the absence of the same 
quality in all other years. The 
striking characteristic of Naught- 
Nine the present writer has been 
entirely unable to discover. In our 
first year we were not remarkable 
for numbers or brilliance. Nearly 
thirty intelligent young men were 
registered as students and about 
half that number joined the ranks 
of the St. llildians, presumably in 
the same capacity. Tradition and 
usage were not uprooted by us, but 
received their due share of wonder- 
ing awe and terrified obedience. Tennis courts were made to 
resemble billiard tables by our efforts, and through the same 
agency a touchline appeared around the campus. We gladly 
seize this opportunity of devoutly thanking the Athletic Ex- 
ecnl ive for their delay in building the rink. The hours which 
succeeding years have spent with hose and shovel have 
afforded us much quiet satisfaction. We rose to the surface 
but once in our freshman year. In the Inter-year Hockey 
Series we tied the third year for the championship. This 
solitary bright triumph was soon obliterated in the gloom 
of .May. ci joli mois, when several valued members departed 
to return no more. Our second year, we may flatter our- 
selves, was marked by the characteristics peculiar to sopho- 
mores. Our noisiness and conceit made us universally 
abhorred. This latter quality was fostered rather than 
checked by our winning the tnter-year Football Champion- 
ship. This year. too. we captured first place in the Steeple- 
chase. II. P. Kossiler being the winner of the cup. In 
hockey, while not winning the cup, we gave the Champions 
a bard fight for first place. The '(I!) St. llildians organized 
a hockey team and inflicted a crushing defeat on the rest 
of the College. 

As is usual among undergraduates, differences of opinion 
were held on the question of initiation. Some young gentle- 
men who had expressed strong and decided views as fresh- 
men now saw fit to make considerable modifications in their 
former opinions. The discussions were carried on with 
all possible energy and vigor and the recollection of year 
meetings held at that period is even now. after the lapse 
of almost three years, a very painful one. The positions 
of hockey and cricket captains were both held bv members 
of '09. The first by G. G. Wright and the second by J. F. 

In 1907-08 the football cup departed from us. but its 
place was taken by the hockey cup. which we won by a 
decisive victory. Rossiter, '09, was appointed football 
captain this year, and he again won the Steeplechase. The 
Inter-year Debating Shield was won for '09 by J. G. 
Widdifield and J. J. Preston, who vanquished all other 
aspirants. This proud trophy we were unable to retain 
this year, in spite of the hard fight which our former 
champions made. Several positions of importance are occu- 
pied this year by members of '09: J. F. Wiseman is Presi- 
dent of the Literary Institute, H. P. Rossiter was again 
football Captain, and has also been appointed Editor-in- 
Chief of the Review and Scribe to Father Episcopon. A 
member of Naught-Nine won the tennis championship of 
St. Hilda's this year, thereby gaining the Frances Endacott 
Trophy. A striking honor has been paid to two unfortunate 
members of the year, in that they were elected as members 
of the Editorial Hoard of Torontonensis. 

But one incident remains to be mentioned. In 1905-06 
the "raising" of a Biblical character was brought to pass 
by the present fourth year, the place chosen for the resur- 
rection being just outside a lecture room window. This 
occurrence gave rise to the extraordinary paean: 

"Kappa Lambda Alpha Siglath Pilezer fine, 
Sigma Sigma Bezelip 
Trinity Naughty-Nine."

Collegiate Institute. With her studies in Modern Languages she has 
Combined great devotion to the college institutions, and after being 
first Vice-President and then Secretary of the Athletic Club, is now 
its President, she is also Secretary of the Literary Society and 
President of the Deutscher Klatscb Klub. Her musical gifts and 
her bright untiring energy have made her a much-valued member 
of '09.

John comes from Guelph, where he was born iii L887. His ele- 
mentary education was received at tin' Central Public School and 
at Upper Canada College. In 1903 he returned to Guelph and for 
two years received private tuition, coming up to Trinity in L905, 
where In- entered the General Course. In football 1? I has figured 

on tin' first and second teams and has been a valuable member of 

t lie Cricket Team since his second year, lie is also an active member 
of the Glee (lub. Whatever John max take up after leaving Trinity 
we wisli him every success 


"Yes, I Inn i gained my experience." 

Howard conies from Fairbank, where he was born in 1nn7. He 
attended public school in Toronto and later Pickering College. 
Clarke has played every year on the 'Oil Football Team and has also 
gained his second rugby colors. He has proved a valuable member. 
besides, of the year Hockey Team. The General Course has num- 
bered him among its members. We feed sure of Clarke's success in 
whatever work he takes up after graduation.

Miss Cook was educated at the llarbord Street Collegiate Institute 

and at St. Monica's School. She has been a g I student in Modern 

Languages and. though a mm resident, has tak.-u her share in the 
life of St. Hilda's, supporting alike the ChfOnicU and the Literary 

Society with the quiel faithfulness characteristic of her.

"Common-sense and kindliness and every modest grace." 

Miss Cornock is another representative of the Parkdale Collegiate 

Institute at Trinity. She is a most faithful student and, though not 
in resilience, has always been a patriotic St. Hildian and a good 
supporter of the college societies. She is Vice-President of the 
Athletic Society and a member of the First Hockey Team, and is 
universally popular on account of her quiet gentle ways. 



"His industry is upstairs and downstairs." 

''Ernest" was horn on Nov. Kith, 1888, in the western metropolis 
of Winnipeg. He attended St. John's College there, but being 
dissatisfied with western civilization he came east and entered Trinity 
College School, Port Hope. He matriculated from T. ('. S. in 1905 
and entered Trinity. Ernest has been a member of the year teams 
and has obtained his first colors in hockey, rugby and cricket. In 
190(3 he was Kink Manager, and it was largely due to his efforts 
that the College Rink proved a success. In 1907 he was Captain of 
II. Rugby and Secretary of the Glee Club, as well as a member of 
the Athletic Executive. In 1908 he was Captain of Tennis and 
Rugby II., and also an energetic member of the French, German and 
Glee Clubs. Ernest intends to enter business after graduation and 
we predict a worthy and successful future for him. 


"A sweet attractivt hind of grace." 

Miss Flagg has the unique distinction of being a native of Saint 
Hilda's country, fur her birthplace, Hartlepool, is not far from 
Whitby Abbey, when' our patron Saint held sway. Miss Flagg came 
to Canada at an early age and was trained at Grimsby High School 
and the Hamilton Collegiate Institute. She has been a most in- 
dustrious student and has taken a generous share in the various 
activities of the College. For two years she was Exchange Editor 
of the Chronicle and is now President of the Literary Society. She 
also represented her year in residence at Evangelia House. 



"You have a nimble wit." 

"R. \\." was born in Toronto. After matriculating from Upper 
Canada in 1905 he entered Trinity with an Edward Blake Scholarship 
in Moderns and ('lassies and with the Leonard McLaughlin. " R. K. ' ' 
has identified himself largely with college activities as well as main- 
taining a high standard of scholarship. In his second year he was 
Captain of the II. Rugby Team and in the following year he was 
elected Cricket Captain. He was also Treasurer of the Literary 
Institute and one of the Board of Review Editors. Gordon has 
played on the Inter-year Football Team throughout his four years 
and in 1908 he was made Second Vice-President of the Literary 
Institute. As Head of the year '09 he has always displayed energy, 
tact and good judgment.

"My mind shall be expressed 
In russet yeas and honest Kersey noes.'' 

Like so many other St. Hililians. Miss Martin is a pupil of the 
Parkdale Collegiate Institute, and is pursuing the Honor Modern 
Language course so popular in '09. Although a homo student, she 
has been a most zealous adherent of all the institutions of St. Hilda 's, 
has taken part with conspicuous success in our dramatic entertain- 
ments, and is Vice-President of the Literary Society, while her 
genial and cheerful kindness makes her a very popular member of 
the College. 



"Rebus angustis animosus ni.jiu 
Fortis appare." 

Miss Montgomery belongs to Frankyille ami received her training 
in the High School of Athens, Ontario. She entered St. Hilda's 
in her second year, and has carried on her studies in the General 
Course with a zeal and industry which have been coupled with a most 
loyal support of college institutions, including that of helping in 
the various good works centred in Evangelia House. 


''//( could distinguish and dividt 
A hair 'twixt south and southwest side." 
John's life here has been characterized by the energetic interest he 
has shown in the various societies. In his freshman year he was the 
First Year Representative on the Literary Council, and in the follow- 
ing year he was "chosen as one of Trinity's Representatives in the 
Students' Parliament. The post of ex-o~fficio Councillor on the Lit. 
Council fell to Preston in 1907, and this year he was elected First 
Vice-President. He was co-winner of the Inter-year Debating Shield 
in 1908. John has also represented Trinity on the University Rifle 
Association and in the Inter-collegiate Debating Union. 



"Come, irluri' is this young gallant?" 
"H. IV' comes from St.. Thomas. He attended the Collegiate 
Institute there and came up to Trinity in 1905. His activities have 
been extensive and far-reaching. During Ins whole course he has been 
mi the First Football Team, and in the past two years lias shown 
himself a capable Captain. He also captained the Year Football 
Team. In 1906 and 1907 the first place in the steeplechase fell to 
Rossiter. This year he has succeeded to the office of Editor-in- 
Chief of the Review, besides having been chosen as Father Episcopon's 
Scribe. He has followed the Modern History course and intends to 
take up journalism, in which we feel confident of his success.

St. Hildas 

NCE it \v;is told of Saint Hilda's College that 
it "was founded by Saint Hilda at Whitby 
(Eng.) in 687. Twelve hundred years 
later it was removed — under loud protests 
from the Alumnae — to Toronto (Ont.)." 

The germ of truth underlying this some- 
what broad statement is this: In the seventh 
century of Christian history the Abbess 
Hilda, renowned throughout England for her learning and 
her holiness, was given the direction of the new Monastery 

monks and 
and moral

conservative educational world. We are led to wonder 
whether the snakes which infested Whitby were a greater 
source of trouble to the inmates of the Abbey than the 
determined opposition which met the first efforts of Saint 
Hilda's to maintain an existence. But obstacles were over- 
thrown and failure defied, just as the snakes were destroyed, 
and fortune began to smile on the little College. When the 
original building was found inadequate, and the present 
one erected in Trinity grounds in 1899. the success of Saint 
Hilda's was assured. The attendance has steadily increased 
and within the history of '09 the College has doubled its 
numbers. Already, again, the question of space has been 
brought forward, and it has been found necessary to appro- 
priate the Provost's Lodge, which has been rented for 
some years. During the past summer the Lodge has been 
fitted up for the reception of its new inmates, and now. 
under the dignified title of Saint Hilda's Lodge, is the 
temporary home of a number of new Saint Hildians. 



"If that he pleased he pleased by manly ways." 

Spenny was horn at Thorold. His early training was obtained 
at Trinity College School, where he had the honor of being Head 
Hoy in 1905. During his college course he has been on the First 
Football and Cricket Teams and has acted as Manager of the 
Hockey Team. Positions on the S. M. A. and the Athletic Associa- 
tion Executives have been held by Spencer, and he has also represented 
Trinity on the Undergraduates' Parliament since its formation, this 
year holding the important position of Secretary. Spenny has fol- 
lowed tlic Philosophy course and intends returning to college next 
year to read Theology. 



"Es bildet sich ein Talent in der Stillt 
Sich i hi Charakter in dem Stromder Welt." 

Miss Thompson is a native of Penetanguishene and received her 
earlier training at St. Monica's School, Toronto. Besides her 
studies in the Honor course of Modern Languages, she has thrown 
herself heartily into the varied activities of college life. She has 

beei the staff of the Chronicle and is now its College Editor. She 

has taken her share in the debates and Has I n mi the Executive of 

the Literary Society. Nor has she neglected athletics, having played 
"ii the Firs! Hockey Team. She is Head of College and her many 
social nit'ts are enabling her to fulfil the exacting duties of this 
exalted position with good success. 


"Die Sehnsucht unit die Triiume ireben, 
Sir sind der weichen Seeh suss: 
Doch edler ist ein starkes Streben, 

TJnd macht den schonen Trunin gewiss." 
Miss Weir was born in Windsor and educated at the Hamilton 
Collegiate Institute. She has pursued successfully the English and 
History course, and has set a consistent example of steady attention 
to work. She has, among other offices, held that of College Librarian, 
is on the staff of the Chronicle, and was '09 Representative in resi- 
dence at Evangelia House, the Alpha Chapter of which is composed 
of St. Hildians, past and present. 


"Sir, I am a true laborer." 
"Jimmy" was born in Picton in 1S87. After attending the local 
Schools he matriculated in 1905 and entered Trinity in the autumn 
of the same year. In his freshman year he was Curator of the 
Literary Institute. He played on his year team in hockey and 
football throughout his course and also obtained his first hockey. 

rugby and association colors. In L908-09 he was elected Captain 
of the Firs! Hockey Team and Assistant Treasurer cit' the Athletic 
Association. In 1907-08 he was co-winner of the lntcr-year Debating 
Shield and in the same year he won the second place in the 
steeplechase. "Jimmy" has always been a popular member of 
the < ' < 1 1 1 1 ■ j4 < ■ . After graduating in Arts he intends to proceed to 
Holy Orders, and in his chosen vocation we wish him every success, 
which is undoubtedly assured him. 





HE early life of Father Episcopon is shrouded 
to a considerable extent under the veil of 
antiquity. But, if we have been unable to 
discover his early characteristics, his man- 
ner of life, and his youthful triumphs, we 
have at least learned of the successes of his 
later years, and in learning these we feel 
that his power and strength must have been 
asserted in no indifferent manner from the 
time of his first connection with Trinity. 
For more than half a century he has paid 
his regular visits to his adopted children. 
And. in spite of the fact that he is commonly 
supposed to inhabit quarters which are at 
once bare and chilly, he seems to lose none 
of his old-time keen vision or vitality. Every 
man comes under him for judgment and 
receives his proportion of praise or censure. 
To the uninitiated there is perhaps no 
college institution which is wrapped in such an element of 
mystery and which exercises such a magic and wholesome 

influence as does Episcopon. The senior men who have 
made his . acquaintance, be that acquaintance intimate or 
distant, have learned the power and position of Trinity's 
censor and consequently with becoming grace have grown 
to respect him. 

Since the first Episcoponieal message was delivered to 
Trinity students the college has more than doubled its size. 
Consequently, the nature of the volume has undergone 
some slight variation. Different phases of present day life 
are constantly coming into view and have to be treated 
in an entirely new way. Thus, the institution adapts and 
betters itself and progresses as the college grows. 

The Episcoponieal succession is strong and this year, 
under the scribeship of Mr. J. J. Preston. Vol. XLVII. was 
read on the evening of March 9th, in Hall. Mr. Preston 
maintained all the high standards of previous years and 
it is safe to say that no man heard the reading who could 
not derive both entertainment and benefit thereby.

Ex=Dean Reeve 

THE retirement of Professor R. A. Reeve from the 
Deanship of the Faculty of Medicine is an event not 

the least important in the series of University happenings 
of which this book is a veracious chronicle. The writ ing- 
ot' an appreciation intra vitam of its subject has been an 
easy task, and when one recalls the retience and modesty 
of this particular servant of the University, the undertaking 
becomes a task — even though it be a pleasure. But 
Ecclesiasticus commands us: "Honor a physician with the 
honor due unto him for the uses which ye may have of him; 
for the Lord hath created him" — and truly this University 
has in the twelve eventful years of his tenure of office 
had many uses of him. So we may without undue comment 
or adulation proceed to recount some of those uses and 
leave a plain tale to speak for itself. When in 1896 Pro- 
fessor Reeve became Dean of the .Medical Faculty, he found 
the staff going vigorously on with the work they had under- 
taken upon the reorganization in 1887 of the Toronto 
School of .Medicine as the Medical Faculty of the Univer- 
sity. The great disaster, or blessing in disguise, which you 
will, of the fire of 1890, had been repaired, the new 
Library, the Biological Building, and in 1895 the Chemical 
Building, had been completed, and the era was dawning 
of a more adequate appreciation on the part of the Pro- 
vincial Government of the needs and rightful claims of 
the Provincial University and particularly of iis wvy 
important Faculty of Medicine. The new Medical Building 
was finished in 1903, another object of great solicitude to 
the ever watchful, thoughtful guardian of the interests of 
both Faculty and University. From 1900 to 1 *>( >T Professor 
Reeve sal in the chair of the President of the Alumni 
Association, and among the multifarious activities of thai 
organization he inaugurated and helped to carry on to com- 

pletion the scheme which, beginning as a plan for a Mem- 
orial Hall in honor of the Ridgeway heroes of 1866. was 
modified and enlarged till it resulted in our present magni- 
ficent Convocation Hall. 

But even more important from a Faculty and University 
point of view were the prolonged, delicate and difficult 
negotiations which resulted in the amalgamation of the 
University of Trinity College with the University of 
Toronto, in both Arts and Medicine. From 18S7 the ques- 
tion had been mooted and forgotten by turns, till in 1900 
it became again active, and in 1903 was harmoniously 
settled. This great gain to the University was attained 
only by the exercise on all hands, and by none more con- 
spicuously than by Professor Reeve, of tactful, unselfish, 
patient and conciliatory methods. Only those who have 
at some time in their lives undertaken a task so complicated 
can appreciate the nights and months of interview, negotia- 
tion, consideration and regard for vested rights and pre- 
conceived ideas, which were given by the Government and 
the authorities of the University to this question, and in 
all of these Professor Reeve bore a large and helpful part. 

As soon as this undertaking was brought to a successful 
issue, an even larger matter arose, to which most earnest 
attention had to be given, the work of the Royal Commission 
on the University, whose report, presented to the 
Lieutenant-Governor in April, 1906, is an epochal docu- 
ment in the University's history. Again the same care 
and attention to the interests of the Faculty of the Uni- 
versity were freely given, and directly arising from the 
reforms brought about by the Commission's report, came 
the long and difficult task of readjusting the Medical 
Faculty, not only in its new relations to the University, 
but to the hospitals in which the clinical teaching is done. 

But little experience is needed in such matters to enable 
one to see their difficulty, and it is perhaps the most just 
and at the same time flattering comment that one can make 
to say that whatever disappointments or heartburnings 
may have arisen from the selection of staff finally decided 
upon, criticism has never been levelled at Professor Reeve, 
or his bona fides and sense of duty to his colleagues called 
into question. 

And now that his request of a year ago to the President 
has been granted, that be be permitted to retire from the 
Deanship and devote more of his time and energy to those 
important professional and private interests which he lias 
so fully sacrificed upon the altar of the University's needs, 
the sentiment uppermost in our minds is not "The King is 
dead. Long live the King." For. while we welcome the 
present Dean. Professor C. K. Clarke, to his new responsi- 
bilities, we shall still have with us. we hope for many years, 
the ripe experience and knowledge of the history and affairs 
of the University possessed by the late Dean, and available 
for the expansion which will go on velut arbor aevo. Rather 
our sentiment is, to return to Ecclesiasticus, "Let us now 
praise famous men, and our fathers that begat us." 

This article could be in no sense compendious or com- 
plete without at least a reference to the tenure by Professor 
Reeve of the Presidency of the British Medical Association 
in 1896. on the memorable occasion of the Toronto meeting. 
Again was displayed the same willingness to spend time 
and energy upon what was to the advantage of the Univer- 
sity, the same tact and bonhomie which have enabled him to 
play the role of presiding officer so often and so well else- 
where. The frequent visits with which we have been 
favored by distinguished men of Medicine and Surgery, 
from the United States, Germany, France and especially 
Great Britain, have been largely due to the esteem in which 
the late Dean is held by all whom he has met, both abroad 
and at home. And. finally, allusion may be permitted to 

Ex-Dean Reeve 

the liberality with which Professor Reeve has always set 
himself to care for the social and, so to speak, domestic 
interests of the undergraduate body. In all his addresses 
to the students, in his carefully thought-out arrangements 
for such occasions as Hallowe'en, and in his paternal solici- 
tude for the rights and interests as well as the moral 
welfare and ethical standards of the students for whom he 
has always felt himself deeply responsible, he has estab- 
lished a standard for all who may succeed him.

History of '09 Medicine 


HE brisk rise in the city's population 
curve on the first of October, 1905. 
was pathognomonic of the opening of 
the University of Toronto, and inci- 
dentally of the Medical Class to be 
known thereafter as '09. The influx, 
not being unprecedented, was un- 
marked by a lavish display of bunting 
or fireworks, and a continuous down- 
pour of rain throughout the entire day was a soul-racking 
ordeal to the timid freshman who had not learned to 
appreciate the grim humor of a room-hunting expedition. 

But misery soon found its company and was dispelled 
when college life began in earnest. The capacity for work. 
enhanced by the zest which novelty always lends, soon mani- 
Eested itself in the faces which grew serious and determined 
as the enormity of the year's work became evident in the 
three principal subjects, to wit: osteology, ossification, and 
bones. The brilliant and original work of Marcy is espe- 
cially worthy of mention at this juncture. 

A life so strenuous, however, was not to continue unin- 
terrupted. Rumors began to float, and floating, reached 
our ears. Our predecessors were planning a grand coup 
in which we were to figure as the etat. An emergency 
meet in»' was called by President -Jamieson, a defence planned, 
and history began to be made forthwith. Of that history, 
little need be said, save that, out of respect to those who are 
gone before, we are agreed that the sophomores made a 
magnificent attempt at our initiation, and gave us the ex- 
perience which made it possible at a later date to paint 
the "School" with their own colors. 

Subsequent developments, however, made it clear that 
such exploits were not suitable as a means of maintaining 
the mens sana in corporr s<ni<>, and. moreover, that they 
were not compatible with the ideal relations popularly 
and properly associated with faculty and students. A 
demand for new methods of recreation arose and the Uni- 

versity campus became the battle ground. Although the 
year as a whole was not addicted to the "bleacher" habit, 
they were net lacking in appreciation of those who did so 
much to maintain the honor of '09 on the athletic field. 
Under the management of Curry the freshman baseball 
team was piloted to the final match for the Inter-year 
Championship, and the work of Miller, Holme. Breuls, 
Brandon and Shaw earned them the admiration of all the 
audience. In rugby the names of Clarke. Brown. Morgan. 
Ecclestone, Duff, Telford and Jamieson have stood out dur- 
ing the course in raised radium type ; while hockey had 
its devotees in Thomas, Harvie. Morgan. Kidd, Clarke and 

The chronicles of the year would not be complete with- 
out a reference to the convention of College Y.M.C.A. 's 
at Nashville, Tenn., at which we were represented by Messrs. 
Fish, Terwilleger and Guest. The vivid accounts given to 
us on their return by these gentlemen still linger in our 
aesthetic convolutions as masterpieces of word-painting: 
and the gallant rescue by Terwilleger of the Kentucky 
maids lost in the Great Cave made him the darling of the 
'09 co-eds. 


History of '09 Medicine — Continued 


We now pass on to the second year — the year in which 
the average medical student, imbued with the feeling of 
omniscience, looks down from his pinnacle of sophomorism, 
and turns in giddiness and disdain at the freshman 
grovelling on the earth beneath him; the year in which 
the full meaning of the words "midnight oil" dawns upon 
him in all its diabolical significance, and the combined aid 
of his previous year's acquisitions, and the bodily vigor 
obtained during the summer away from the smoke and 
grime of the city, is all that saves him from a premature 
dissolution. We had heard much of the difficulties that 
lay in our way. but were not dismayed. A casual observer 
might have received the impression that we were even 
skeptical of them ; for. hardly had the echo of the opening 
college doors died away when an event happened before 
which all previous demonstrations paled into insignificance. 
The Professor of Biology looked down upon the scene from 
his window 'd niche in the wall above and smiled as he 
turned towards the volumes of Darwin, with their soiled 
pages and dog 's ears, ranged on the shelves behind him ; 
seniors left their fevered and jaundiced patients at the 
hospitals and rushed to the scene; cab-drivers and coach- 
men halted and looked on, open-mouthed and exophthalmic ; 
pedestrians forgot their destinations and stood speechless 
and wondering; newspaper reporters appeared like clouds 
out of a clear sky and gloated over their good fortune ; and 
even a passing policeman stopped and chafed at his bit 
(or "billy") as he thought of his fancied personal griev- 
ance against the "stoodents. " In a word, the scrap, or, 
as our more cultured Arts friends would have it, the hustle, 
was in progress. After sufficient progress had been made, 
it naturally came to an end, and to show his appreciation 
of the spirit in which it had been carried out. an informal 
reception to the committee was held by the then President 
a few days later. Various disciplinary and pecuniary 
matters were discussed, and at the close of the meeting 
contributions were gracefully accepted by the proper 
authorities for the S. P. S. mission fund. 

Subsequently life became more serious. Time fled 

rapidly, and work accumulated steadily and surely. The 
days grew short, and we longed for a glimpse of real day- 
light, as. lantern in hand, we wallowed through the snow 
in the grey hours of the morning to perch on a stool in the 
dissecting room, or to listen semi-consciously to an early 
lecture in materia-medica. One redeeming ray of light 
we had. however, in President Mclnnis. Our ever-present 
help in time of trouble, our Portia on all occasions when 
the pound of flesh was in question, he was the peacemaker 
jmr excellence; and when spring arrived, and faces grew 
long, and emaciation crept in among us like the grim 
spectre that he was. Mack's waistcoat hung the loosest of all.

lie is till fault who has no fault tit all." 

He who chooses Medicine for his profession docs not 
sanely do so with ;i view to a life of opulence and ease. 
His life <>r rather existence, will be strenuous, and if in 
time he can afford a bed of down, he will be fortunate 
indeed if he gets a chance to sleep in it. His way is hard. 
though why he should share the fate of the transgessor is 
not apparent ; and it is doubtless as it should be, that the 
college life of the medical student is in some measure an 
initiation into the life of toil that approaches as he nears 
the end of his course. 

One year in that course affords him a respite, not that 
lie works the less, but that he works in the light instead 
of darkness; and as he advances the light grows stronger 
and illuminates not only his new sphere, but the one from 
which he has just emerged. 

With feelings such as these we return, and the smiles 
of greeting give way to the more serious faces which the 
dignity of our new position demands. If respite there be. 
then, let us use it to the best advantage and secure a more 
intimate acquaintance with each other than the ordeal of 
the previous years permitted. We shall first make a visit 
to the reading and smoking room, but meekly and cautiously, 
for in one corner stands Philp with his finger in a sopho- 
more buttonhole, extolling the merits of his particular 
brand of text-book, while Defries and Christian glance at 
him with an expression not to be mistaken for affection. 
McPhee shuffles across the floor to the piano, and the 
Barrie trio render "He's a Cousin of Mine." The Moose 
ends up two notes behind, and McBride and Duff proceed 
to rend him limb from limb, when the bell rings and 
saves him. 

We follow the crowd to the "lab.," pausing al the fool 
of the stairway to take a passing shot al Prof. Kcdy wait- 
ing for his turn al the "phone." In the laboratory we 
find Dolly, somewhat dishevelled but radiant and triumph- 
anl as the albumen in the city water comes down as an 
opaque precipitate. Across the hall stands Bill Slater, 
pencil in hand, surrounded by a few of the elect. The 

question is momentous and weighty brains are working at 
full pressure limit. In a day or two tickets for a "dawnee" 
will be offered to the public. We glide quietly into the 
next room, but hesitate as two bald heads glisten over the 
tops of the bottles. Is this the sanctum sanctorum of the 
faculty? No; a closer scrutiny reveals the form of Presi- 
dent Thomas, stealing a few moments from his official 
duties to catch up with his work, and next to him. Verral, 
corpulent and alopecic. radiant with the success of our 
Theatre Night, and demonstrating to a demonstrator. 

And so we go on. until not one has been missed, for if 
we found one unmarked by any trait of his own. would 
he not be the greatest prodigy of all .'

History of '09 Medicine — Concluded 


"I am a part of all that I have met; 
Yet all experience is an arch wherethro' 
Gleams that untravelled world, whose margin fades 
Forever and forever when I move." 

With each succeeding year the return has been marked 
by an increased delight at the renewal of college associa- 
tions, and now we renew them for the last time. One face, 
however, is missing. There is one hand less to shake, and 
we become grave as we wonder reverently at the wisdom 
of a verdict so different from what oiirs would have been. 

We have become seniors, but how different the reality 
from the ideal of three years ago ! We looked at the 
mountain from the base and speculated on the view to be 
obtained from the summit. We have reached the summit 
only to find ourselves surrounded on all sides by peaks im- 
measurably above us. The summit itself is by no means 
smooth. Jagged spurs of rock lie right in the path. One 
boulder of recent formation especially makes us quail. Even 
our guides are in a quandary. A new clinical time-table 
has been perpetrated. Admittedly, all time-tables are more 
or less perplexing, but this one stands unique as the em- 
bodiment of all the conceptions of Dante and the Spanish 
Inquisition. However, inasmuch as it presupposes our 
omnipresence we are flattered and become reconciled. If 
its purpose was to convey the idea that hard work was 
necessary, it was successful, and we accepted the hint. 
Certainly, those under whose guidance we toiled were ever 
ready to work with us, and we were encouraged and our 
labors lightened. 

But, with all our difficulties, occasions were not wanting 
on which the tension was momentarily relaxed. The class- 
meetings summoned by President Cunningham were such 
models of despatch as to afford no small amount of amuse- 
ment. Was it the appointment of a committee? — Accla- 
mation! Was a lecture to be declared off? — Carried! 
Unanimity was the watch-word and the march was resumed. 
Occasionally, at the command of McBride, a man was 
"passed up," but he kept his note-book in his hand, and 
his pen in his mouth, and sat him down where he landed 
and immediately commenced to write. Once during the 
year we had a whole hour to ourselves, and the time was 
employed in singing, story-telling, leap-frog, and other 
mediaeval pastimes. 

Thus days grew into weeks, and weeks into months, and 
with their passing college life is drawing to a close. The 
bonds so firmly welded by the associations of four years 
must be severed; and as we turn from the big white pile 
for the last time, we look back and pay a parting tribute 
to those who remain to do for others what they have so 
nobly done for us. 

Many lessons we have learned — the greatest of all, that 
we have learned little. Have we not, then, accomplished 
much ?

The Dream of the Stupid Student 

TT's a winter night and I'm sitting alone in my little lamp-lit room. 

And I think of exams, in clinical work that are posted to come so soon. 
A round my head is the reek of smoke and the smell of the burning oil. 
On the desk- lies "Clinical Methods" and into the night I toil. 

pIIEX slowly the wreaths of tobacco smoke take form as they lazily swim. 
And I see McPhed. in his dark grey suit and glasses with golden rim. 
A quizzical look comes over his face and he suddenly says to me: 
"Now take a look at this patient — and tell me what you see." 

A XI) there in a bed that's grown from smoke is a patient that's smoky, too. 

So I focus my lamps on the smoky face and wish that I were through. 
Then fold down the clothes in the orthodox way and silently turn down the sheet, 
And turn and turn and look around and shuffle my eold. eold feet. 

\^ATITII a quick admonition to "Hurry." I come to with a jerk. 

And summon my scattered senses to make them do their work. 
After rambling on for a minute or so. my cortex doing its best. 
The examiner, with a weary frown, says, "Auscultate the chest." 

Q() down I sit on the side of the bed with a Bodies' phonendoscope. 

But seem to feel as drowsy as if I'd taken dope. 
Then ask the patient, in dulcet tones, to count for me one. two. three, 
And after the effort fall asleep — the land of dreams for me. 

QOME time later 1 waken up and the patient with plaintive whine 

Is saying nine hundred and ninety-eight, nine hundred and ninety-nine. 
Then slowly the forms in the lazy smoke disseminate through the air. 
And thi' feeling gradually comes to me thai I've fallen asleep in my chair. 




Born in Toronto in 1885, has a wide knowledge of things scholastic, 
having received instruction in four American cities before finally 
Settling in Toronto, where he attended business college, the Tech., 
Jarvia Street Collegiate, and finished with Medicine. For two 
preceding summers lie has cultivated the jesthetic side of his nature 
among the Patricians of Nipigon district. From association with 
"Buster" Brown he has been familiarly known among us as ' ' Mary. ' ' 
Although disposed to look at the serious side of life, Morris' popu- 
larity in any community is assured by his liking for the fair sex. 


"Be who will never strive, will never win!" 
Chas. first saw the light of day in the humble little village of 

Vienna, February 18th, 1884. He receive. I his early training in the 
village school. Later, moving to Tillsonburg, he graduated from the 
Tillsonburg High School, being known there us an enthusiastic foot- 
ball player. After three years in the "Wild West" he entered as 
a Med., where he has served the prescribed apprenticeship. For an 
"outside hobby" (as advised by Osier), he amused himself and 
classmates with piano selections from Chopin and other masters.

Toronto was George's birthplace in 1885. After matriculating 
from St. Andrew's College in L903 he entered thai fall the Biological 
and Physical Science course al Toronto I ' iii versi I y . graduating in 

Arts in 1907 with Firsl 'lass II ■-. George's ability and pleasant 

manner are bound i" win him u prominenl place in the Medical 
profession of this city, and we all look for his success. He has the 
honor of being Secretary of the Lewellys Barker Club and is a member 

Of I'M Delia Psi. 

BAILEY, GEORGE, M.D. (Detroit). 

George Bailey was born in Toronto in 1*77 and receive. 1 his public 

scl 1 education in the Seaton, Palmerston and Union Schools. He 

matriculated from the Harbord street Collegiate in 1899 and then 
took Commercial and shorthand courses at the Central Business 
College. From Toronto to Walkei v ille and later to Detroit. Michigan, 
were his next moves. After spending three years in the employ oi 
the Detroit. Belle Isle & Windsor Fern Co. he entered the Detroit 

College of Medicine, graduating lasl summer. During the lasl year 

of his course he was Treasurer of the Y.M.t'.A. and also of the 
gra mating class. lie returned to Toronto in the fall of 1908 to 
conned his name with the graduating class of '09. 



"A pleasant companion." 
Began life at Madoc, Out., in 1884, but soon moved to more 
densely settled districts, finally arriving, while still at a tender age, 
in the Queen City, after having homes in varied scenes. He attended 
Stratford Collegiate Institute and became a member of the B. and P. 
class of '07 in Victoria College. He was known there, as elsewhere, 
as a good student and admirer of the ladies. His Medical work is 
always well done and he is always on hand at lectures — yet finds time 
to enjoy the social functions of college life. He is much interested 
in Y.M.C.A. work and missionary problems and whether he practises 
the healing art at home or abroad we predict his success. 


"We love him highly and shall continue our graces towards him." 
This follower of Hippocrates claims as his birthplace the town 
of Winchester, Dundas county, Ont. Here the boy Ouseley grew in 
wisdom and in stature, matriculating from Morrisburg Collegiate 
Institute in '02. After acting as schoolmaster for three years, he 
entered the Western Medical College in '05, and in the fall of '07 
decided to cast his lot with the University of Toronto, joining class 
'09. Not only has he been a clever student and esteemed classmate 
hut he has also demonstrated his ability as a football player at both 
universities. As he passes out from college our best wishes for success 
accompany him. 


"C'est dans le repos d' 'esprit que I' on aspire a tout mats ce doux 
repos doit se cherch'er en nous-menies." 

Born in Georgetown, British Guiana, July 23rd, 1886, he sailed 
for Cayenne in October, 1889; graduated with the Honors of his class, 
' ' 1905, ' ' from ' ' College de Cayenne. ' ' A fair scholar, not greedy 
of fame, but seeking Truth, he joined the ranks of Meds., '09. A 
religious lover of Science and a true friend, let us hope he will not 
sigh for his desires. 



''.1 man he seems of cheerful yesterdays and confident to-morrows." 

Born at Gananoque, Ont., in 1885. Here he received his public 
and high school education. Matriculated in 1905 and the same autumn 
entered upon his course in Medicine with '09 class. Accustomed 
as he was to the freedom and the bracing atmosphere of the old St. 
Lawrence, where he had spent many a happy hour in his canoe or 
" putput, " Gerald thought it pretty hard lines to get down to the 
strenuous life of a Medical student. Nevertheless, he has applied 
himself with more than ordinary diligence, with the result that his 
examinations are no cause for anxiety to him. With much confidence 
do we lend our worthy classmate to the profession. 




"Hi Who doth climb the difficult mountains. 
Will tin day outstrip an idler man." 

Harold Bell was born in Collingwood in 1885. Part of bis early 
career was spent in Orillia, but later he returned to Collingwood, 
where he obtained public and high school education. Matriculating 
in 1905 he came to Toronto and registered in 1909 Medicine. His 
unassuming manner will insure success in his profession. 



"Fair at spurt, faithful nt work, and above all endued with a high 
si use of honor." 

Irving joined the class of '09 as a sophomore, being allowed 
his first year for work done in the Natural Science course in Arts, 
from which he was graduated in 1906. In his second year in Arts he 
won tin- Edward Blake Scholarship and his work in Physiology was 
swell that he obtained a demonstratorship for two years. As Captain 
of the Senior Medical Association Team in 1907 he was instrumental 
LS landing the Faculty Cup for the first time. He is also an exponent 
of the manly art of self-defence. Those who know him best know 
thai lie has not neglected the social side of University life. 


"Great nun Jinn been among us; hands that penned, and tongues 
that uttered wisdom — better none." 
Known to all of us as "Bunk." duly 2sth. 1888, was a big day 
for Norwich, Out. That town was honored by Julian's presence for 
eight years and then he moved to Simcoe, where he obtained his 
primary education, matriculating from the Simcoe High School in 
1905. Of a scientific turn of mind, and with an insatiable thirst 
for knowledge, Bunk cast his lot with the class '09, and neither he 
nor his fellow students have been sorry that he did. Quiet, unassum- 
ing, and a thorough gentleman, his success in his chosen profese 
is assured. He is a member of Alpha Kappa Kappa. 


"A man not of word but of actum." 
Tom. claims Forest as his home, where he received his primary 
education. Fall of 1905 saw Tom. one of the foremost in the 
"Bunch"' when hustles were "real," and his utter ignorance of fear 
served him amply as wing man on the Senior Mods. Rugby Team, 
('oming from Forest, Tom's hobby is baseball, and for four years he 
played second base for '09 team. His personality and executive ability 
have made themselves felt in the Medical election during last four 
years. He is a politician of few words and a man of the ••Silent 
hunt." As reward for his loyalty to the year. Tom. represented 
Toronto Medicals at Western University, London. We will follow 
him with interest in his profession.

"A man not of words, but of actions." 

"Bob's" lungs were first inflated with "mixed impurities" in 
Sydenham, Out., June 28th, 1889. His travels started early in life. 
Deseronto and Port Hope were visited in turn, but neither seemed 

to be as g I as his native town, so he returned to Sydenham. After 

absorbing all the knowledge possible at a country school, he thought 
thai his time could be put to far better advantage in Toronto. In 
1905 he graduated from Harbord Collegiate, and after mature con- 
sideration decided thai his studies could be continued better at Meds. 
than any other, so he enrolled with class '09. "Bob." is a quiet, 
whole-souled student, ever taking a deep interest in his work, which 
we think will surely bring him every success in his profession. 



• • oh, what have wt ht r< 

Born in Drayton, 7th February, 1888, Bob. passed his younger 
days there, and because his people moved to Wiarton he went along, 
too. There he finished his [public school course and graduated from 
Wiarton High School, lie then entered Medicine, which had been 
his ambition since he was liist able to lisp the word, "Papa." The 
year lucky enough to gel him was '09. Bob has always proved him- 
self to I tie of the best ami of his future sue ess we all feel assured. 


• • Y( a, tin/ ii n imtii ml hand 
Doth lift to ili, its of blood." 
A doctor's life has often been described in the same terms that 
General Sheridan used to express his view of war. But it 1ms no 
terrors for energetic Buster. Four years ago lie set out cheerfully 
on a course of Medicine, and has ever since been conscientious and 
diligent in his pursuit of it. Buster 1ms been a good worker in 
athletics, too. As a freshman he played with Varsity II. Con- 
fining his attention bitterly to the executive side of athletic affairs, 
he has held the offices of Manager of Varsity III. Secretary Rugby 
Club, President Rugby Club. Vice-President Athletic Association. 
member of the Athletic Directorate, and Honorary Secretary of the 
C.I. R.F.I 1 . Buster is a native of Toronto of about twenty-two years' 



"A man's n man for a' thai.'' 
D. A. < '. was born at Ayton. Bruce county. November 28th, L886. 
Twenty-two years have gifted him with the stalwart frame of the 
race which has "porridge" for its watchword and a sprig of heather 
on the family crest. His early education was obtained at llepworth 
and a Classic finish at Wiarton High School was the "Open Sesame" 
to the Toronto Medical College. His spare moments during his 
third year were devoted to the Curatorship of the Medical Society 
and occasional delvings into city water research work. Dolly's 
graduation ceremony includes the best wishes of the entire class. 




"No man hatli walked along our road with step 

So active, so inquiring eye, or tongue 

So varied in discourse." 
John R. L. Christian (though he has since bartered his "Christ- 
ian'' name for the more euphonious title of Jack) became an actor 
in the stage life at Oil City in 1883. Here he secured a Junior Leav- 
ing certificate. Taught two years in Lambton county. At Jarvis 
Collegiate he did some special work to enter Medicine in '05. Through- 
out his course his friends were many and his misfortunes few. The 
gentle art of persuasion is with him a master passion, especially in 
the summer vacation. His Irish wit, Scotch canniness and his 
speech, exponent of the law of opposites, form a rare combination. 
Dame Fortune bids fair for Jack in the Wild West. 



"But his smile it was pensive and childlike." 
Harold was born in Kingston, Ont. In his youth he had the 
misfortune to enter Queen's, but he showed himself superioi to 
destiny and saved his career by soon leaving the Presbyterians to 
join the year of '09 at Toronto. During his course here the ill 
effects of his early associations have passed off and are now scarcely 
appreciable. While at Varsity he lias helped to make his year famous 
in the Mulock Cup games, and has brought honor to the University 
as a member of the Varsity Hockey Team, of which he is Captain 
this year. He experts to enter that branch of Medicine which deals 
with "illusions.'' "delusions" and "hallucinations'' and has 
already successfully mastered the significance of these terms. 


" 'Tis the mind that shines in ev'ry grace, 
An' chiefly in his roguish e'en." 
It is with pride that the town of Meaford lays claim to N. E. 
< 'ulbertson as one of her old boys. Here his early life was spent and 
his early education gained. Graduating from her high school in 
1901 he spent three years in public school teaching. Deciding in 
1904 that higher education had charms for him, he entered University 
College. After two years spent in Science hei entered the field of 
Medicine with the class of '09. He is known to all as a "jolly 
good fellow." His popularity is shown by his being elected member 
of the Students' Parliament and Vice-President of the Medical 
y.M.C.A. His fellow students will always be glad to own him as 
' ' one of our year. ' ' 



J. D. C. chose the county of Lambton as a suitable starting point 
for a career. From the Sarnia Collegiate Institute he conceived 
an admiration for the life of the late Dr. Arnold, whom he adopted 
as his model for three years. But "somewhere east of Suez the 
temple bells were 1 calling," and thither he journeyed to make his 
home where the oil fields of Borneo and Java vied with each other 
in putting to shame those of his native county. As a fitting ter- 
mination to his college life he was condemned by his peers to the 
Presidential chair of the Medical Society, and now, with a fail- 
wind and clear sky, he commences a journey which all will watch 
with interest. 




"His limbs are cast on manly mould, 
For hardy sports or contest bold, 
Not his the form, nor his the eye, 

That youthful maiden wont to fly." 
"Doug." first made his bow on this world's stage March 23rd, 
1887. He-early availed himself of the facilities of growing stronger 
in body and intellect by attending Lansdowne Public School, and 
early attracting attention by his ability to juggle the basket-ball. 
At Earbord Collegiate Institute, as usual, he devoted his time to 
rugby, lacrosse, tennis and other athletic sports. In 1905 "Doug."' 
enrolled with the rest of the famous class of '09, and has during 
the last four years been a member of every team the year has placed 
on the field. Having the interest of humanity at heart, we predict 
future success for him in his chosen profession. 


"To know him is to Ion him." 
Robert Davis was born in the county of Perth, 188(3. He received 
his early education in the little school house close at home and 
in Seaforth Sigh School. Prom both institutions he graduated with 
highest honors. lie entered Medicine in October, 1905. During 
bhe four years with the class 'mi he has been known as a genial good 
fellow. "Bob." is a man of retiring disposition, a clever student 
and a very true friend, lie possesses qualities wihch promise a 
notable career. Launching out now at the early age of L':',, with such 
ability and training as he has, much is expected and looked for of 

him by all his friends. 


• • Mark you this youth, 
Wc shall hear of him again." 

Walter first expanded his lungs in Onondaga in the year 1883. 
He attended the high school at Hagersville and matriculated in due 
season. He wielded the crayon for three years among the '•Red- 
men'' of Tuscorora. He selected Medicine as his ultimate profess 
and entered the University of Toronto in the class of '09. 



"My end draws nigh: 'Tis tvnn that I wen gone." 

William, better known as Hill., was born on or near the banks 
of that limpid stream, the Don. some 'J 1 years ago. His wealth of 
knowledge, samples of which will persist in leaking out at times, is 
the result of rod ami book, dealt with equal advantage at the Pro- 
vincial Model School ami later at the .Tarvis Collegiate. Sere his 
business ability found scope in the managing of the first year of the 
school paper, The Magnet. He speaks two languages (English and 
money) with great fluency, ami his abilities as an organizer, along 
ivith his pleasant smile and winning ways, will no doubt end in the 
formation of great Medical syndicates to corner disease — with himself 
as President, of course.

"Keeps his counsel, does his duty. 
Cleaves to friends, and loveth beauty." 

This youthful physician, born near St. Thomas, Ont., primarily 
educated near the old farm, and matriculating from St. Thomas 
Collegiate Institute, entered upon Medical studies in the fall of '05. 
These studies he commenced at the Western Medical College, London, 
Ont., but at the beginning of his third year he transferred to this 
College. Both at this University and at the Western, Leon has been 
a worthy classmate and a student of more than ordinary ability, 
being a First-Class Honor man in primary work. On commencing 
practice we can sec but one difficulty in store for him, that being 
"prophylaxis of matrimony," the etiological factor of which is his 
smiling face and sunny disposition. 


Edwin John Eacrett paid his first tribute to the profession by 
entrusting himself to the local physician at Exeter, Huron County, 
in 1881. Equipped with the corpuscles of the early pioneers he 
assimilated all that was obtainable in the public school and. entering 
the field of journalism, became adept with the implements from the 
office broom to the calamus scriptorius. Then he attended Goderich 
Collegiate and Regina Normal, spending two years teaching in Alberta 
and another two in Western journalism. Convinced, however, that 
"an art which has principles of action and reasons in each case" 
was to be preferred to one which involved the dangers of action 
and damages in each case, he returned in 1905 to study Medicine, 
and the subsequent years have shown that he has chosen his pro- 
fession wiselv. 



' ' Lay on Mac ; Duff. 
T. A. J. 1). was born near Cookstown, Simeoe county, June loth, 

L886. After carving his nai >n various books and seats in the 

local school ami in the Barrie Collegiate he betook himself to the 
back titty and secured a short birch rod witli which he maintained 
authority ami terror in a public school for two years. During his 
Medical course he has demonstrated his ability under the lamp-shade. 
on the campus and in the ball-room, and his election by acclamation 

as Representative to McGill was a well- rited tribute. All will 

wish him the success he deserves. 



This member of class '(111 hails from the village of Omemee, where 
in the middle eighties he was born. Having completed his course in 
Omemee High School, where he did creditable work, he spent three 
years in the teaching profession. He then spent one year in Lindsay 
Collegiate previous to entering the University. Throughout his course 
he has shown diligence and thoroughness in his study and research. 
We predict for his future the same success that has characterized his 
student da vs. 




The "Ambitious" City was the birthplace of Wilf. Soon after 
leaving the cradle he decided that his time could be far better spent 
elsewhere, so he came to Toronto. He attended Parkdale Collegiate, 
where most of his time was taken np playing rugby and hockey. He 
graduated from P. C. I. in 1905 and, knowing no better place to go, 
he decided to throw in his lot with class '09 Medicine. Since coming 
to Meds. Wilf. has been a tower of strength to our athletic teams. 
He has played quarter for the Mulock Cup Rugby Team every year, 
and those who have seen the Jenning's Cup hockey matches well 
remember his brilliant playing. Wilf. has made many friends since 
he joined the class and all hope that he will have great success in 
the profession of Medicine. 



"His fioorf blade carves the casques of men. 
His tough lanct thrusteth sure." 

Herbert Hewlett Eedy was born in the eighties in the town of 
Harriston, where he received his public and high school training. 
Having graduated as a school teacher from the Mount Forest Model, 
he taught for a number of years, after which he turned his mind 
to the University centre and registered in Medicine in the fall of 
1905. His industrious habits and studious mind have given him a 
strong place among the midnight toilers of his year. Herb's presence 
in the sick room will bring assurance, and if perseverance added to 
skill will conquer disease, all ills will disappear under his watchful 
eye. We predict for him a rosy future in the combined field of 
Medicine and Surgery. 


"Amor vincit 

Stayner was born at Windsor, in July, 1884, and for some years 
afterwards his career was more or less like that of others. After 
leaving the public school he entered the Windsor Collegiate Institute, 
from which he matriculated. Then, deciding to study Medicine, he 
entered the University of Toronto, with this object in view, with the 
class of '09, and since that time has made many warm friends 
amongst us. He has been a faithful student, but has also found 
time to get a lot of pleasure out of the years he has been with us, 
leaving behind him the impression of being a good fellow in every 
sense of the word. 



H. G. Emerson was born in Essex county and there his childhood 
days were spent on his father 's farm, ' ' Fairhope. ' ' He was educated 
in a rural school and in the Leamington High School, from which 
he obtained his matriculation and his leaving certificate. He then 
attended the Windsor Model School and at once entered the profes- 
sion of teaching. He received the principalship of the Mount Carmel 
Public School, and there spent three years of successful work. Leav- 
ing teaching, he secured a position in the office of the Ohio & Indiana 
branch of the Standard Oil Co., and in the fall of the same year 
(1905) entered the Toronto Medical College. 




"1 am a part of (ill that I hare met." 

P. J. Emerson was horn in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, 
England, but his home being changed to Bedford, he received his 
early education at the Bedford Modern School of that town. At the 
age of sixteen he came to Canada, going directly out to New West- 
minster, B.( '., and after remaining there for a year lie went on to 
Victoria, which city he has since made his home until entering the 
Toronto Medical College. Previous to entering class '09 he received 
two years' training as a nurse in the Provincial Royal Jubilee Hos- 
pital. Victoria. 



"1 am bewitched with tin rogue's company." 

In October, L887, the subject of this sketch honored Owen Sound 
by selecting it as his birthplace. After a more or less eventful period 
in the public schools and Collegiate Institute there, in 1905 he found 

himself in possession of the documents necessary to register with '09 
in the Toronto Medical Faculty. His popularity among his classmates 
is shown in his election as Representative to Queen's for 1909. In 
Spite of the fact that he has not conscientiously followed Dr. Osier's 
advice regarding the cold storage of his affections, Harry is a good 
student when not otherwise engaged and will undoubtedly " make 
g I ' ' iii his profession.

Edward Schooley Fish was born in Oxford county, Ont., but the 
family removing to Michigan a year later he received his primary 
education in that State, where he afterwards taught school for one 
year. Returning to Canada he entered the Miestei schaft School of 
Languages, matriculating at Trinity in 1898. After six years given 
to business and educational pursuits he entered his Medical course 
in 1905. For years he has been actively engaged in Christian work 
among the poor of this city and especially in connection with Toronto 
Mission Union, where much of his time has been spent during his 
college course.

Bom at New Sarum, Elgin county. Here he received his early 
education, matriculating eventually in '05 at the Aylmer Collegiate 
Institute. In the fall of the same year he commenced his Medical 
studies in the Western University, London, finishing his primary work 
very creditably. Coming to Toronto he joined the (lass "(tit; here he 
has made many friends, and being possessed of inexhaustible brain 
power, in addition to a keen sense thr.t it is the duty of a Med. to 
apply himself diligently to his work, Victor has come through his 
course with ease and high standing. We are sure that his future in 
the West country, where he intends to locate, will be one of marvellous 




Joe. Gaudier spent his earliest years in Fort Colonge, Quebec. 
But by the time high school education is needed we find him in the 
town of Newburgh, Ont. In 1898 he entered Queen's Qniversity on 
Honor Matriculation Standing, taking the Williamson No. 2 Scholar- 
ship in Classics and French. In 1901 he graduated, taking the 
B.A. degree in Classics. Four years later he began the study of 
Medicine at his old Alma Mater, but in his third year he joined '09 
Medicine in Toronto and settled down to that happy medium between 
overworking ami underworking, which is characteristic of Toronto

Percy X. Gardner, alias "Pere, " born in Winnipeg, Man., in the 

year , amid circumstances which he does not remember. After 

partaking of the advantages afforded by the Toronto public school 
system he entered the time-honored halls of Jarvis Collegiate, from 
which he matriculated in 1905. Like many others he regarded the 
study of Medicine as eminently desirable and accordingly entered 
Medicine. "Perc" is well known throughout University athletics, 
being on the gym. team and Executive of "07, and for the last two 
years had charge of the conditioning of the various University rugby 
and hockey teams, which he performed with such success as to win 
for himself an enviable name at 1908 Olympiad, held in London, Eng. 


"Conspicuous for mirth ami laughter, 
'Hit ladies first, tht fellows after." 

James Rennie Gibson entered this mundane sphere April, 1884, in 
the village of Millbank. After receiving such education as the burg 
afforded, Jim. took matriculation at that famous Mecca of knowledge 
— Stratford Collegiate Institute. Having a fancy for Medicine, we 
next hear of him from the ranks of '09. Here he devoted his time 
to study, when not otherwise engaged. He carefully avoided over- 
exertion at all times and did not allow studies to interfere with his 
education, but emerged with no stars in his crown. His success and 
popularity were evidenced by Irs being elected President of the At- 
Home Committee. His success in student life will doubtless be fol- 
lowed by a brilliant career. 



George A. Glionna was born in Toronto in 1884. Received his 
elementary education in St. Patrick's School, Toronto, from which 
place he passed his entrance examinations. In the year 1900 he went 
to Mount St. Louis College, Montreal, and took up a Scientific- and 
Commercial course for three years. Then, having resolved to follow 
the Medical profession, he came back to Toronto to study Latin, and 
matriculated in 1900.

As envoy I was sent : 

(True all my art, my tact, my skill. 

To this great end were bent 

Through four long weary years, until — ) 

But there! You know I went. 

I packed my grip and went. 

With spirits bubbling, sparkling, gay, 

The statesmen of McGill 

Met me that great red-letter day 

And usher 'd me with shrill 

Of pipe and horn and festive lay. 

Where we should all fulfil — 

There we did all full fill. 

They pledged the name of Varsity. 

QUARTERMASTER RAK . Envoy to Univ. College 

SERGT. LEGGETT Envoy to Dentals 


CORPORAL PEDLAR Envoy to Osgoode 

SCENE — Grill Room of St. Charles. 

They're the mighty envoys of old Naughty-Nine, 

Ambassadors great one and all; 
The proudest and loudest that e'er writ a line. 
Since Adam or Eve had a fall, 
Yes, since Adam ov Eve had a fall! 

I quailed not on that toast. 

But, smiling, rose and gracefully 

Said that from coast to coast 

Of this great land, McGill and — We 

Were Canada's chief boast. 

(I meant it. too, that boast.) 

Much more I said but have forgot: 

Suffice to say that I 

To port m\ tight hark safely brought. 

With cargo not a-rye; 

The fullest proof whereof lias taught 

This lay that does not lie. 


Great Duff's lay cannot lie! 


To Queen's majestic court I went. 

As Mercury by Vars'ty sent. 

To bear to the Med's Parliament 

A. message of good-will. 

Their reverend Senate, grave and staid. 

For me a banquet sumptuous made, 

Where I Demosthenes out say 'd, 

Beat Tully in word skill. 

I touched on themes Imperial, 

Referred to turkey's sudden fall. 

Spoke briefly of Ol'R famed football 

And of OUR prowess dread. 

With fizzing wit and popping jest 

And liquid laughter bubbling blest 

My speech was full — as from one chest 

They cried: "He's got a head!" 

Thus I my duty did perform, 

And then sat down amid a storm 

Of loud congratulations warm 

With no discordant jar. 

They said my speech was very tine. 

As pleasant as rich, rare old wine — 

I feel that I was born to shine 

A diplomatic star. 


All hail the name of Ewens great. 
The future glory of the State. 


The name of Brandon it sounded so grand on 

The morning after the evening before, 

But just what took place on that night no 

plain trace, on 
This morning could anyone find any more. 
I went to great London, with of wit a fund (on 
Paper), fam'd Varsity to represent, 
But the wiles of the town on the Thames I 

now frown on. 
For my notes disappear' d, I know not where 

they went. 
But the boys the next morn on the streets 

cold, forlorn, on 

Our way to the train talked of me with delight. 
And said Vars'ty's fame, on account of my 

name, on 
True hist'ry's pages would shine ever bright. 


Yes, hist'ry grows grand, on account 
of our Brandon, 

The best things of life shining star- 
like and bright. 


To Trinity I happy went, 

With sash and baldric gay, 

And swelling pride in my own state, 

And the role I was to play. 

Right royally we enjoyed ourselves 

At famous Trinity : 

Holme, I, and Varsity's envoy, 

The great and glorious three. 


Hurrah for Trinity ! 


I, Baker, me to Vic. did hie, 

To famished souls to bear

But dry are all things there. 

I talked with vestal virgins coy:

A subtle diplomat. 

In promenade and chattering chit, 

In chittering chat, I trow,

And so I was, I vow!

In my little benzine waggon 

Went I to the S. P. S., 

There to drink a little flagon 

•lust to find some happiness. 

And I found it. yes. I found it. 

For the first time in my life. 

Though I'd often eircl'd 'round it — 

But had never told my wife. 

But yon Pedlar Os-goods waiting 

For inspection, so I'll go. 

And later end relating 

Of my little tale of woe. 


There is something rich awaiting 
'Neath his silence, we all know. 


I thought I knew a thing or two. 
But I grew not where lawyers grew: 
In vain my goods were exposed to view 

At Osgoodi "pity 'tis, 'tis true." 

I thought that I could drink a glass. 

Sing songs that at a pinch would pass: 

Tell spicy tales — but oh: alas! 

In all. these lawyers me surpass. 

So when they slowly brought me home, 

Upon a bier across the foam. 

I vowed no more afield to roam. 

And to my sorrow read this poem. 


They're the mighty envoys of old Xaughtv-Xine,

" Palman non sine pulvere." 

Clarence Wentworth Graham was born October 17th. 1884, in 
Huron county, near Goderich. He received his primary education in 
Goderich Collegiate Institute. He spent some time in the commercial 
world, but having a keen desire ti> delve into the mysteries of the 
healing art he entered Medicine with the class of '08. Illness com- 
pelled him tn drop out during third year, and consequently he com- 
pleted his course with the class of '09, and makes his bow to the 
public with them. And now as he goes out to follow his chosen 
profession we wish him that success which his merits and sense of 
honor are sure tn bring him. 



"Full well they laughed with counterfeited ;ilee, 
.It all his jokes, for many n join hud he." 

Gordon was born in Seaforth in 1887, and after completing his 
matriculation in 1904 decided that the noble profession of Medicine 
would hereafter be his life-work, and journeying to Toronto joined 
the class of '09. He will always be remembered as a good student, 
but one who would not allow work to interfere with his social engage- 
ments. His ready wit and happy smile have won many friends, and 
a brilliant future is predicted tor him. He is a member of the Nu 
Sigma Nu. 



••J fellow of infinitt jest - of most excellent fancy." 

When I, nine left Ottawa, after Completing his ma t liculat ion at 
th Collegiate Institute there in 1905, and entered the study of the 
"healing art," Ottawa lost one of her finest fellows, but at the same 

time a great aci|iiisitiiin was made to the idass of 'oil. He will lie 
remembered as taking an active interest in year and college functions 

as well as being a g I student and his many friends will follow with 

interest the success which is predicted for him in his chosen vocation. 
He is a member of the Lewellys Barker Club and Nu Signa Nu. 


Born in Toronto. August loth, 1887. He received his primary 

education and then attended St. Michael's College. After obtaining 
his matriculation, the next thing was the question of future learning. 
In 1004 he entered the I!, and 1'. couise. and after spending One year 
he decided tu continue in Medicine solely, and joined the class of '09. 

That his action in thus changing was for the lust is apparent from 
his past record, for with a quiet yet persistent observation and 

application of tacts he has proven that he has not missed his mark. 
Willi the goal in sight now we feel that ''The end will indeed crown 
1 he work. 




"A man worth while." 

Born in Toronto in 1887, Beverley received his preparatory educa- 
tion at Upper Canada College. Matriculating in 1905, the fall of 
the same year found him duly enrolled in the Medical Department. 
Beverley has played some hockey at times, and has lent his moral 
support to the team at all other times. This latter means something 
more than usual, perhaps, as we have our suspicions that Beverley 
endeavors to conform his actions to principles, for this year he has 
exhibited a thoroughness and conscientiousness which augurs well for 
the future. It is characteristic of him that before launching himself 
upon an unsuspecting public he should see fit further to prepare 
himself by some postgraduate work, probably at Johns Hopkins. 



"A man of few words." 

Chas. Edwin Harris was born in Kingsville, 1885, where he went 
to public school. Matriculating from there he went to high school in 
Leamington. He came to Varsity in 1905 and joined '09 Medicine. 
He is a good student and is everything implied in his name, "EC." 


"Expect no. Sir, in this narration, 
A fleechin', fleth'rin dedication." 

Charles Albert Harvie was -bom in the village of Edgar, Simcoe 
county, on June 7th, 1887. He received his primary education in 
Orillia and entered the University of Toronto in 1905 with the class 
of '09 in Medicine. While in attendance here he has taken an active 
part in both the social and athletic side of the college life. 



Born November 27, 1886, at Barrie, Out., Edward received his 
primary education in the town of his birth. Later, he moved to 
Toronto and attended the Harbord Collegiate Institute, from which he 
matriculated in '05. The fall of this year Ed. turned his attention 
to the study of Medicine and registered with the class of '09. He 
always took a keen interest on all class affairs, and gradually won 
the confidence of his classmates. In his final year he was elected 
Treasurer of the annual ' ' At-Home ' ' Committee. Ed. has great 
hope for the future. His success is already assured. 




" Thert is a destiny thai shapes our ends, rough hew them as wt will." 

The fall of L903 saw ;i freshman of seventeen summers treading, 
for the first time, the corridors of Old Varsity. This was none other 
than Bert., who had journeyed hither from his native town of Oil 
Springs, where he had received his primary education. Profiting by 
tin experience of others, he entered the six-year course to have a 
preparatory Arts training before entering Medicine. Throughout 
the course he has taken an active interest in baseball, his abilities 
as first baseman heing well known. In his third year he was Captain 
of the team. Be lias served '09 faithfully as member of the Executive 
of the Medico Literary Society, as Representative to the Trinity 
Dance, and as sub-Editor of Torontonensis. Although Bert, has not 
lived up to tin aphorisms of Dr. Osier, still he is a staunch follower 
of Hipprcrates. 



"Cool as mi icich <m<l as determined as the rock ii hangs upon." 

Bruce boasts of Lindsay, Ont., as his birthplace and his place 

nt' abnde since December 6th, 1886. It was there that he received 

his public school ami collegiate training, matriculating in 1905. Since 
entering Medicine he has twice served as the Medical Representative 
in the University Curling Club, lias been prominent in social and 
military circles, enjoying the distinction of a Lieutenancy in the 
45th Victoria Regiment. Popular with a large circle of friends both 
in and nut of the University, gentlemanly, courteous, refined, success- 
ful as a student, a brilliant career as a Medical man is assured, lie 

is a member of Alpha Kappa Kappa. 




"Here is my hand for true constancy." 

The subject of this sketch was born at Durham. Ont. After a few 
years spent at the primary schools there, he continued his preparatory 
education at Toronto and matriculated from Upper Canada College. 
Then his father's profession attracted him and he has been a faithful 
worshipper at the feet of Aesculapius ever since. He was a member 
of the third year Dinner Committee. His courteous manner and 
progressive spirit bespeak for him a successful career. He belongs 
in Alpha Delta Phi and is a member of the Lewellys Barker Club. 



"With whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning." 

Bill made his presence known "away back in the eighties" — to 
be exact, duly 10th, 1882. His primary education was obtained at 
Wellandport. He later attended the Welland High School and the 
Niagara Palls Collegiate, graduating from the latter in 1901. After 
a term spent at the Benmsville Model School, he taught three years 
in the town of his nativity. He later went into the insurance business 
in St. Catharines and made an enviable reputation tor himself in 
business circles. Tiring of a commercial lite he joined the (dass 1909 
and among his fellow students has made himself thoroughly popular, 
lie was honored with the I 'residency of the freshman year and the 
Presidency of the Third Year Dinner Committee. For four years a 

member of Alpha Kappa Kappa. 




"He looks abroad into the varied field 
Of Nature, and, though poor perhaps compared 
With those whose mansions glitter in his sight, 
Calls the (beloved profession) all his own." 
In the historic year of 1885 Jack began his nursery life on a farm 
in the township of Vespra, county of Simcoe. Several years later 
found him at school receiving the usual allowance of the blue beech. 
Passing the entrance in 1899, he entered the Barrie Collegiate and 
after two years of diligent study matriculated in 1902. The next 
three years were spent again 'mid rural scenes until in 1905 he finally 
graduated from the plough handles to enter Medicine at Toronto 
University. The success which lias continually attended him 'tis 
hoped may follow him through life. 



" Xot once but often has this Kid(d) been seen and heard." 
Born in the village of Wellington, August 4th, 1884, which was 
his abode during childhood, he took a great fancy to the water. At 
the age of three his family moved to Picton, where he began his 
schooldoys. Although of a shy nature (who'd ever think so now?) he 
soon became a promising athlete, his favorites being canoeing and 
hockey, both of which he pursued in a wider field during his sojourn 
in Kingston, being one of the Beechgrove-Frontenac hockey players 
(runners-up of the Junior O.H.A. championship, 1903). Finishing 
his matriculation at Trenton, where again he was prominent in 
athletics, he decided to follow his father's career and entered the 
Faculty of Medicine, 1905, during which course he has been a most 
successful scholar. 


"His air, his voice, his looks, anil honest soul 
Speak all so movingly in his behalf. 

Richard Donald Lane in the early eighties made a smiling debut 
upon life's stage at the Soo. At the age of one year, however, he 
sought the broader opportunities of Bruce county. There rural life 
liked him well. He grew, strove and throve. In due time Walkerton 
Hign School ''Honored'" him with Junior Leaving and Matriculation. 
After playing a master part for five years in the home school, where 
he neither spared the rod nor spoiled the child, he decided that his 
best role would be as "The Doctor." Accordingly he became one of 
(dass '09. Of "Dick's" popularity and success here the ladies, 
class lists and class offices speak eloquently. And his many friends 
already envy him his outlook in the future. 



"He is tin soul of honor. 

Grant was bom in the town of Walkerton, Bruce county, as a.i 
other wise men have ever been, where he received his earlier education. 
Even at that tender age he showed his ability to sleep through a 
whole lesson or lecture. This is a most enviable accomplishment, but 
he has yet a better one. He can tell all that has passed and can 
quote reams from any lecturer you please to name. Amongst the 
boys he has grown to be a favorite and everywhere is thought an Al 
fellow. '119 is proud to own him and feels sure that sometime in 
the future he will bring honor and fame back to her. 



Women Students of the Class '09 

'.I Iranian's a icunuiii for (r that." 

X the autumn of 1905 only six 
girls registered in the first year 

in the Ontario .Medical College for 
Women. These six formed the last 
class in that honored institution, 
which was established 22 years be- 
fore to enable women to secure a 
medical education to prepare them 
for work in the Foreign Mission 
Field and elsewhere. 

The class of '09 was unique. 
- It was the smallest class that had 
ever been in the College, but despite its meagre num- 
bers it possessed a richness of variety and a wealth of 
independence seldom seen even in College classes. In our 
ranks we had the city girl, the country girl, the independent 
school teacher accustomed to swaying youthful audiences 
and birch rods, and the girl of sweel sixteen who had never 
Keen away from home before. We had girls from three 
different continents, yet in one respect we were all alike, we 
were all thirsting for knowledge: that thirst was the tie 
which hound us together, and we rejoiced in the hope 
that it would be satiated at this great fount of learning. 

In fear and trembling we entered upon our work and 
enjoyed the encouraging smile of the senior girls. Each 
time a senior girl spoke to us it ensured our happiness for 
at least ;i week, consequent ly we were happy dearly all the 
time. One of our first matters of hiisiness was to elect 
■ ■hiss officers for the year. This was the event of the 
season, the red-letter day of the term. The excitement was 
high, hut the expenses were not heavy. We felt that it 

required some tact to distribute the honors impartially. 
There were six girls and only five officers to be appointed. 
After some deliberation we decided to have an Honorary 
President and the girl who was so modest as to refuse all 
oilier offices had this honor thrust upon her. We were all 
very proud after this, and although we had still the pro- 
verbial emerald tint of the freshette we were quite oblivous 
of it and considered ourselves a very importanl part of the 

At the end of our first year the Ontario Medical College 
for Women closed its doors, which made it necessary for 
us to finish our Medical Course at the University of Toronto. 
and so test the advantages and disadvantages of co-educa- 

In our second year we were not idle, we studied Anatomy 
morning, afternoon and evening, and even during our 

G0Gld^!( (^M&gl^y 



sleeping hours the gruesome subject Loomed up before us. 
Yet despite all this we were not unhappy, we rejoiced in 
the thought that if we endured to the end of the term and 
survived the examinations we would then be in our third 
year — the glorious third year of which we had heard so 
much and to which we looked with anticipation of greal 

When at last the third year came our number was 
reduced to three. How proudly we walked the hospitals 
with our stethescopes and thermometers! We had really 
begun the preparation for our life work. Nothing daunted 
us except the autopsies. To us a clinic was a grand sweet 

song, and from the lectures in Medical Jurisprudence we 
got a glimpse of the funny side of life. 

In our senior year we followed the example of the 
gentlemen of our class and donned a dignified manner and 
looked upon the juniors with sympathy. We became so 
absorbed in our work that we had scarcely time to eat our 
meals and afternoon teas were out of the question. 

To the men of our year we wish to express our apprecia- 
tion of their many acts of kindness and gallantry which 
have made our College course more pleasant and the memory 
of which will long linger in the cerbral cortex of every on*; 
of us. Jennie Sjiillie, '09. 



Garretson Linscott, familiarly known as "Garry," first opened 
his eves to this vale of tears in Brantfonl, on April Kith. 1SS2. 
Garry received his primary education in his home town and matricu- 
lated from the Brantford Collegiate Institute in the year 1901. 
Win three years' business experience with the Bradley-Garretson 
Publishing Company he decided to enter the Medical profession and 
thus joined the class of '08. In the fall of 1905 typhoid fever caused 
him to drop out a year and re-enter with the class of '09. Although 
in- -toiling qualities have won for him many true friends among 
his fellow students his greatesl friendships have been formed with

After attending the pillage scl I hi' entered Norwood High School 

and at the en. I iif two years' hard work finished with a Second-Class 
Teachers' Certificate ami Junior Matriculation to his credit. As 

Valedictorian he completed his Model School course in 1902 and for 
two and a half years sought to educate the growing mind of the 
country. Here he acquired a dignity which has characterized him 
during his Medical course. Trained in a town famous as a football 
centre, Lynn has some reputation at the game, not only on the 
College grounds, but in Northern Alberta, where he has spent Ids 
vacations and where he expects to practice.

■•Sun Ifi, surely slumber is mort sweet than toil." 

Horn in Simcoe county some three and twenty years ago. scarcely 
five years had passed over his head when the city called him. He 
came to Varsity in 1903, entering with the class of '07 B. and P. 
At graduation '07 did not wish to lose him entirely so bestowed on 
him the Treasurership of the Permanent Year Organization. The 
two final years of his college course were spent in straight Medicine. 
Here, too, his executive ability was recognized, for he has done 
service as Medical Representative of Undergraduates' Union and as 
Treasurer of Committee of Graduation Dinner. He was a membei 
of the Historical and Speculative Clubs, also of the newly formed 
Lewellys Barker club and of Alpha Kappa Kappa, optimistic, cool 
ami calculating, ami a general favorite with all. Hill is in on the 
ground floor for a successful Medicant. 


•'.I ins: son maketh >i glad father." 
Archibald Bruce Macallum was born in L886 and before he was 
verj many years old hail established a record of which his worthy 
father, the Professor, need not be ashamed. In his early days he 
came to Toronto ami received him primary education at Wellesley 
Street Public School. Iii 1S9S he entered Harbord Street Collegiate, 
from where he matriculated in L903. Being naturally ambitious, and 
wishing to keep the name of .Macallum prominent in the Medical 
world, lie joined 'u7 class in Arts and subsequently '09 Medicine. 
He pays good attention to his work, enjoys cricket and leads a quiet 
life. Bruce will make a thorough Medical man.

"And oft the story ran and still the wonder grew 
That one small head could carry all Bill knew." 

William J. M. Marcy was born in the year 1878 near Gait, Ontario. 
Lucky the star which announced the advent of William. Bill's early 
education was acquired in the home public school, which he left to 
attend the Waterdown High School Two years later he "Modelled'' 
from Hamilton and then taught school for five years. Having now 
done his duty to the youth under his charge. Bill decided in 1905 to 
enter Toronto Medical College. Here he has distinguished himself 
by capturing first honors in his junior years and by his geniality in 
the class, and his grasping knowledge of the human hands ' work, 
he has earned for himself the title of ' ' Anatomy Bill. ' ' Bill 's 
future spells success. 



C. J. McB. announced his assumption of an independent existence 
by a vigorous howl on the night of Oct. 9th, 1886, at Egbert, Simeoe 
county. His earliest attempt at co-ordination resulted in a broad 
smile, presumably at the world in which he found himself set adrift, 
and more than a score of years have served to exalt the virulence of 
his geniality, which invariably infects those with whom he associates. 
Numerous patches of cicatricial tissue, acquired under the rod of 
the local Mr. Squeers, and a certificate from the Barrie Collegiate, 
branded him as a pedagogue for two years. His record as a student 
of Medicine is one which will not terminate in an office at the country 

McCaffrey, dan. 

" 'E is little, 'E is wise, 
'E is a terror for his size." 

Dan. McCaffrey was born in Madoc in 1880. During his school- 
boy days he strained the vigilance of his teachers by his mischevious 
ways. He attended Madoc High School and later taught school for a 
number of years before coming into class '09 of Medicine. Dan. 
is a good student and is quiet and retiring, but is able to use very 
expressive English when ruffled. His Irish blood shows in his ready 
wit, genial good humor and quick power of repartee. We predict a 
brilliant future for Dan., as he has all the marks of a promising 



"Let's have a good time, says Mac, 
Let the books go flippity flop; 
So he sets out at eight, and at three he gets back, 
Yet in exams. In comes out on top." 

1886 was a memorable year — seers foretold the end of the world, 
bread dropped two cents a loaf, then Mac. happened along, and all 
St. Marys rejoiced in his arrival. Mac. was a remarkable child. 
When but ten months old, wearying of village life, he boarded a 
passing freight, and thenceforth he dwelt in peace and happiness in 
Sault Ste. Marie until the early age of sixteen, when he entered 
Hamilton Collegiate, and in 1905 entered Medicine with '09. In the 
first year he was a member of the University Lacrosse Team, and 
in his second Representative of the Meds. to Pharmacy.

On the sunny hill-crest, near the intersection of the cross-roads, 
R. J. first saw the light of day. Amidst scenes of rustic- beauty lie 
passed Ins boyhood days, and. as a youth, enjoyed wrestling from 
nature her hard-earned stores. But our subject had aspirations for 
other work, and so in 1903 entered the Guelph Collegiate Institute, 
where, after a very creditable course, he obtained his Junior Matricula- 
tion. Toronto Medical College then opened her portals to this son 
id' the soil, and, here as elsewhere, he gained the respect of his 
fellows. He was one id' the original promoters id' the Medico Literary 
Society, and is the present Corresponding Secretary of the Medical 
Society. A brilliant future is no doubt in store for our worthy Mae.

The subject of our sketch drifted into the world in Grey county. 
in the year 1881. After passing through all the regular infantile 
disorders safely, he moved into I'.ruce county, while still a boy, to the 
great delight of all the neighbors. He attended Paisley High Sc1i.miI 

until able to read Virgil by the aid of a key, and in two years left 

the scl 1 tn attend Model School in Walkerton. After teaching 

successfully for two and a half years he showed his good sense by 
joining '09 'd;| S s in Medicine in Toronto University. ''Mac." is 
a quiet, modest student with a good professional manner and when 
he settles in the West his clientele will include all who know him. 


Three names are eminently prominent in recent history — Victoria, 
Manilla, Melnnis. In June, 1879, "Mac." fought and won his first 
battle near the little village of Manilla. For the next nineteen years 
he was engeged in active service as "Field" Marshal, guarding his 
father's domains in Victoria county. Out. His early mastery of 
calculations was received in Manilla Public School, while later Lindsay 
Collegiate shared in the glory of increasing Mac's intellectual bump. 
From 19(13-1905 he held a chair in the Academy of Learning near 
Bobcaygeon as Prof, of Heterogenous Subjects. In 1905 the mysteries 
typified by the skull and cross-bones attracted him to Toronto. Dur- 
ing our sophomore evolutionary period he was President of '09, the 
members of which consider this canny Scot's future an enviable one. 



"For my purpost holds j in follow knowledgt hhi u shining star 
Beyond tin utmost bounds of liiumm thought." 

Mack hails from the good old county of Glengarry. He received 
his early education in the public school and afterwards attended 
Alexandria High School, passing his Junior Heaving and Matriculation 
examinations in 1904. After spending one year as a pedagogue 
ambition led him to enter upon the study of Medicine in Queen's 
University. Having creditably Completed two years there he came 
to Toronto to complete his course. Here he has also met with success, 
and has made for himself many warm friends. Truly may it be said 
that those who know him best esteem him most. 




"His "honest, cheerful, modest face 
Ayr iron him friend* in every place." 
In February, 1885, just outside the village of Lucknow, Bill made 
his first debut into society. After eighteen long years he decided to 
branch out from his old homestead into a wider sphere of activity, 
and finally landed at Toronto. After spending one year in Arts at 
Toronto University his inclinations for the study of Medicine became 
so strong that he registered the next year in the Medical faculty. 
His ever-pleasant disposition and happy manner have won for him 
a warm spot in the hearts of his fellow students — as no doubt they 
will in the hearts of the people in which community he practices. 
Besides being a good student, Bill takes a keen but quiet interest in 
the various sports. 



"Much may be made of a Scotchman if he be caught young." 
John Duncan McPhee was born in Brechin, Ontario county, in 
1885. Here his public school training was properly attended to and 
he went to the Orillia Collegiate Institute, where he qualified to 
teach the young idea how to shoot! He then wielded the rod for a 
short time and, needless to say, success crowned his efforts. In 
Medicine he saw the path to fame and enrolled with the class of '09, 
and since that time has shown decided ability. Fond of music, his 
performances on the reading room piano have been immensely enjoyed 
at different times. His untiring energy and pleasant manner have 
won him the respect and friendship of his fellow students and we 
all join in wishing him every success in his chosen profession.

Bob. had most of the diseases of children at Wingham, Ont. ; earliest 
record is April, 1ST". The usual complaints of the public school 
age are recorded in his history. From 1893-94 Listowel High School 
claims him. For the next three years his name is on the register of 
Goderich Collegiate. He got his Senior Matriculation in 1897. The 
next eight years were spent at La Vallee, Rainy River District, home- 
steading and teaching school. He began his Medical course in 1905, 
sharing the Second Scholarship with C. A. Harvie in the first year 
and securing Honor standing in the second year.

"In every deed of mischief he had a heart to resolve, 
A head to contrive, and a hand to execute." 
In the old town of Barrie, nestling on the shores of Kempenfeldt 
Bay, one bleak October day in the year 1887, a fair-haired cherub(?) 
arrived in the early morning hours, a habit, by the way, which still 
persists. He was christened Edward, but is much better known as 
Ted. Ted has made himself deservedly popular throughout the 
University. He took an active interest in athletics, having played 
on the baseball, hockey and football teams. In his sophomore year 
he was Vice-President of the "At-Home" Committee. 



"Great thoughts, great feelings come to him 
Like instinct*, unaware." 
Heber was born on a farm in Sombra township, Lambton county, 
in 1889. After a few years of farm life and country school he 
moved to Toronto, where he resided for four years. From here he 
went to Cayuga, where he lived for a few years. Once again he 
''made tracks" for his native county and landed in Sarnia, where 
he lived for eight years, coming again to Toronto in 1907. At 
Sarnia he completed his public and high school education. At high 
school he was distinguished by his electrical experiments in the 
Physics lab. and as editor of a college journal, called the 2 B 
Screecher, which was famous for its aggressive editorials. He 
entered Medicine with the class of '09 and lias proved himself a good

Born in Ann Arbor, Mich., on December 21st, 1880. He received 
his primary education at the Woodstock Collegiate Institute and 
registered at Varsity with the class of ' ' '09. ' ' Throughout his 
course he has been exceedingly interested in all scientific pursuits. 
His general good nature and irresistible smile has made him very 
popular in school and will always win him friends. He has proven 
himself an honest student, true friend and gentleman, and those of 
us who know him predict for him a grand and honorable future in 
his chosen profession. 



"Titles of honor add not to his worth." 

The subject of this sketch was born and educated in the town of 
Essex. He quickly passed through the primary schools and matricu- 
lated in 1902. Then various lines of trade took his attention for 
three years, after which time he began the study of Medicine with 
the tdass of '09. Good fellowship and ability have won for him an 
enviable place among his fellows and these qualities, combined with 
the sheet anchor of common sense, will make his career one of interest 
to follow. He is a member of Nu Sigma Nu.

"Palmarn qui meruit ferat." 
Walter was born in the year of our Lord 1888, in the north end 
■ it' the Emerald Isle. In 1889, as the potato crop was a failure in 
the "Auld Sod,"* lie, with a few trusted followers, took advantage 
of the cheap rates and came to Canada. He took up his abode in 
Toronto and received his preparatory education at Parkdale Collegiate. 
Then (misguided youth!) he started in to study something about 
Science, but became enlightened and, seeing the error of his way, 
came over to the Medical Building, as he discovered that the telephone 
Bervice was more prompt. In his third year Walter was a member 
of the Dinner Committee and in his final year aided materially in 
organizing the fourth year dances. He will, judging from his sojourn 
at the College, be successful in whatever course he pursues — especially 
if he follows the vocation ot dancing master.

"Expert hi Scii no, nun i expert at puns." 
Harry was born in Toronto in lsS(i. He acquired his early 
education in the Toronto public schools and at Parkdale Collegiate. 
From his youth he has been a frequent attendant at Shea's. He reads 
The Globe, and always turns first to the "Breakfast Table" page. 
These facts account for his proficiency in quips, and his punning 
proclivities. He regards the telephone as tin 1 greatest achievement 
of modern science. No other invention can be compared with it. 
In his third year he was First Vice-President of the Medical At-Home 
Committee. Wherever he starts to practice, his abounding good 
nature will make him popular with his patients — while they live. 



' ' So much for iilli wishing — how 
It steals tin time! Tn business mm'.'' 
Frederick .lames O'Connor was born in Iss) near the notable 
town of Campbellford, Ontario, lie acquired his early education in 
the home public school and then entered the Campbellford High 
School. At tin' age of eighteen he "Modelled" from Port Hop. 
and taught public school till he was twenty -one, when he considered 
himself ready to enter upon the study of Medicine. Although a 
youthful teacher, Frederick is said to have always made his ellucida- 
tions quite perspicuous to the young under his training. In Medicine 
he lias earned for himself the title of "Frederick the Great and 
Small," standing high in the honor list at the close of each year. 
We predict for Fred, a notable future. 




K. J. O'Neill was born in Arthur, Out., on the 8th of December, 
1889, where be received his primary education, and registered at 
Varsity with the class of '09. He is one of the youngest gradiiates 
of the class, which speaks for his ability and powers of application. 
We who have been associated with him for four years of student 
life know him to be incurably good-natured, capable, sympathetic, 
companionable, anil we predict for him many patients and many

Tom, as he is commonly known, first saw the light of day in 
the township of Nelson, county of Halton, in 1NS7. Mr matricu- 
lated from the Hamilton Collegiate Institute in 1905. Having a 
yearning for Medicine, he enrolled in the class of '09. Tom has 
not only made many friends in his own year, but is well known 
throughout the College. We fed sure that in his future career his 
pleasant appearance and professional manner will captivate hosts 
of patients. 



''And still we gazed, and still flu wonder grew, 
That out: small head could earn/ nil he lenew." 

Charles Bemister Parker, B.A., landed in Toronto during the 
winter of 1884. Charlie must have started his kindergarten train- 
ing very early, or else he inherited the wisdom of his ancestors, 
for everyone now acknowledges him to be one of the shining stars 
of his year. After putting in a few years in Jarvis Collegiate, he 
entered Victoria University, and graduated from there in the first 
B. and P. class in 1904. He wore the medal on his breast, From 
then till 1907 he taught school and engaged in business, and then 
cast in his lot with '09. 


Renounced the condition of atelectasis in 1879, the ceremony 
being duly approved by the customary aggregation of dear old 
ladies of Mariposa township, Victoria county, Ont. The vicissitudes 
of public school life he divided between the local and Lindsay 
academies, and from the Lindsay Collegiate he received the Junior 
Leaving and Matriculation standing in 1878. After teaching in the 
county for six years, he entered the Toronto Medical College, 
which was obviously the place for him. Not a few were the situa- 
tions relieved by his ready wit and impromptu eloquence, and his 
was a room where banjo and other strings made frequent college 
evenings glad. The great field of Medicine finds him equipped and 
able, and we see assured success in his practice.

"His ambition is to be 
A skill'd and erudite M.D." 
Penney, William George, in 188(5 was born. 
Upon a cool, bright March morn. 
To Jarvis Institute he werat, 
Where full two happy years were spent. 
At drugs he first applied his skill, 
Dispensing well and with a will. 
Toward Medicine he did incline, 
And joined the class of '09. 
Four years 'he then to lectures sped. 
And in the lab. his spare time fled. 
His charming way and radiant smile 
Helped weary hours to beguile; 
And we in turn prognose for him 
Health, wealth, success, and lasting vim. 



"A modest youth, with cool reflection crowned." 

He matriculated from U.C.C. in 1903, and entered University 
College as a student of Biological and Physical Science. After 
graduating in Arts, he spent five months in England and on the 
Continent, and on his return to Toronto decided to join the class 
of '09 Medicine. Here he has shown himself a diligent student, 
while not neglecting other University interests. During the session 
'08- '09 he acted as assistant demonstrator in Biology. " Rex " is 
a member of the Lewellys Barker Club, and, apart from his 
academic studies, is an officer in the Army Medical Corps.

esteemed member. He took a deep interest in the Undergraduates ' 
Parliament, being Secretary in '06- '07 and a member of the 
Executive in '08- '09. We foresee for George a bright future. He 
is a member of Nu Sigma Nu, and has the honor of being Vice-Presi- 
dent of the Lewellys Barker Club. 



"Labor omnia rincit." 
Was born in Mount Forest, March 7th, 1885. His parents 
removed to Owen Sound, where he received a public school edu- 
cation. He entered the Owen Sound Collegiate Institute, but 
intellectual pursuits did not appeal to him at that particular stage 
of his career. He took to sailing the bounding main, and this 
diversion has gained for him throughout his college life the name 
of ' ' Skipper. ' ' Impressed by the agonies of suffering humanity, 
he was inspired with the ambition to study Medicine, and enrolled 
with '09. His college career lias been marked by perseverance and 
application. His genial manner gained for him the love and respect 
of his classmates.

pleted liis primary work at that University, he joined the third 
vear class at Varsity. At both Universities he has been an 
industrious student and one admired by all who knew him. being 
an original " funmaker," if his audience be not to,, large. Mr.

"The deepest rivers flow with least sound." 

Back in the eighties, in the Queen City, a boyish form first 
gave utterance to sound, and little did anyone think that " it 
would be able, at a future date, to give in detail the peculiar 
courses of ithe recurrent laryngeal nerves. But a diligent search 
for knowledge, at tihe Provincial Model School and Upper Canada 
College, brought about a change, and Bruce, now tall of stature, 
came to Varsity, entering the B. and P. course. In his final two years 
he spent part of the time instilling the principles of chemical 
physiology into the inane minds of fresh/men. That the social and 
intellectual sides of life have not been neglected will be shown in 
the future. 



"A man not given to words or strife— a man of sense.'' 

Fred first saw the light in Kincardine. He attended school at 
Walkerton, where he matriculated. After a few years he decided 
to enter Medicine, and '09 was lucky enough to be his choice. 
Although of a quiet and retiring disposition, he has always been 
one of the boys. His manliness and cheerful manner have won 
him a host of friends. His perseverance and thoroughness should 
place him among the shining lights of the profession. 


"One equal temper, strong in trill. 
To strive, to seelc, to find and not to yield." 
Born in Toronto on March 29, 1883, he entered the University 
from Jarvis Street Collegiate, Toronto. "Bruder" imbibed the 
rudiments of anatomy and made his choice of a profession at a 
very early age, ihe being the eldest son of the late Dr. Hugh 
Robertson. Professor of Anatomy in Trinity Medical College. 
After graduating in Arts with the class '06, he joined '08 Medicine. 
He remained out of college a year and returned to graduate with 
the present class. 




Born in Barrie, 1885. Usual life of a kid. Entered Collegiate 
at tender age of twelve summers. At once had a negative reaction 
with principal. He quoted Shakespeare: "Macbeth,'' Act III., 
Scene IV.: " Stand not upon the order of your going, but go at

five years. Cure effected. Exit Collegiate with Senior Leaving 
Certificate and a life-long memory of above principal. Registered

Coming to the University in the fall of 1905, be joined the 
renowned class of 19(19. forest is that town which turns out 
basebail] players, and .lack is oo exception. He was manager of 
year baseball team in L906 and was twirler in 1908. Mixing 
pleasure with work, he has spent four very profitable years in 
Toronto, which will prepare him for his future work. Hippocrates 
will find an earnest follower and true friend in '' Jack." 




"He was <i gentleman in whom I built un absolut< trust.'' 

This bright-faced youth first landed on British soil at Kirkton. 
Perth county, Ontario. Having absorbed all the knowledge avail- 
able at his home school, he betook himself to St. Marys Collegiate. 
where he matriculated in '03. During the next two years he 
remained at home, under the jurisdiction of his parents, until fitted 
to enter upon his strenuous course in pursuit of his chosen pro- 
fession. He completed his primary work in Medicine at the 
Western University, London, Ontario, in 'n7. making first-class 
honor standing. The following autumn he resumed his course at 
Toronto with the '09 class. Roy has been a faithful and systematic 
student, and if proficiency be the test, we bespeak for him a high 
place among his fellows in this noble profession.

Ontario. In 1902 he turned his attention to the instruction of the 
minds of the youth. However, following his natural bent, in the 
fall of 1905 he entered as an undergraduate the Toronto Medical 
Faculty. He has taken an active part in college societies and 
athletics, ami has twice held the office of member of the "At- 
Home ' ' ( lommittee.

Thirst for knowledge. Family History — Marked hereditary taint. 
Personal History — Horn in Russia, he early suffered from Cosacky 
pains and a tingling sensation for Hie land of the free, and thus 
went westward to seek relief, first in the B. and P. Course, where 
he obtained his B.A. in '07, and then in the Medical Faculty. 
Previous Diseases — Had all the vices of childhood and follies of 
youth, as well as the blue a young man ought to have. He never 
suffered from insomnia during lectures. Morbid Anatomy— -A short 
but heavy mass of protoplasm, with a hypert rophied paunieulus

"The most significant feature in the history of an epoch 
is the mannner it has of welcoming a great man." 
Bob, when a " wee, sma ' laddie," used to chase the squirrels 
and search for hickory nuts on the side of Mount Hamilton. The 
son of a Methodist minister, his lias been a nomadic life. Recent 
years, however, he has spent on the Georgian Bay, and his mar- 
vellous knowledge of the intricacies of a gasoline launch have won 
for him fame and distinction. During the four years* sojourn 
with '09, in addition to cultivating the social and aesthetic side 
of college life, Bob has been a consistent worker. Popular with 
the ladies, popular with his fellow-students, possessed with an 
abundance of tact and good judgment, we predict for him a 
brilliant career. 


Middlesex, Ont., is famous for its "Men of the Hour." Upon 
the delivery of his maiden speech on "Protection,'' at a late hour, 
April 15, ']S86, "Bland, Jr.," identified himself with these 
celebrites. Fervor, modulaition and forceful climax characterized 
his oratory. St. Thomas immediately claimed his time and talents. 
There he won distinction on the Public School and Collegiarte 
"Black" Boards. During 1904 he was greatly enamoured with 
the luring wiles of Miss Pharmacy. The affection, though, was 
transitory, for the following year he became so ardently attached 
to her more distinguished sister, Miss Medicine, that four years 
of increasing happiness eliminate all chance of a mistake. '09 
realizes in Bert all qualities necessary in a warm friend, good 
citizen, and progressive practitioner. 


"Independence twiv ami Independenct forever.'' 
Harry ' ' Carney ' ' Taylor was born January 23, 1881, in Glencoe. 
When still in skirts he emigrated to Wallaceburg, matriculated 
there in '04 and came to Toronto the following year to learn the 
mysteries of Medicine. In a few weeks "Carney'' made his 
debut on the athletic field, playing on the football team. He has 
always taken a great interest in athletics, and his motto is, "Med's 
(iist and forever. He was second 1 year Medical representative on 
the "Art-Home" committee; elected President; of the Athletic 
Association in his third year, and fourth year Medical representative 
on the Theatre Committee. We are certain that Carney's future 
success is assured. Member of Nu Sigma Nu. 



Norman Telford was born on December 23rd, 1881, in the 
Beverly Swamps, Wentworth county. Farm life grew wearisome 
and at fifteen he engaged with the C. P. R. as locomotive fireman ; 
in the fall of 1902 he heard the call to a higher education and 
commenced a three year course in Woodstock College. During 
that time he was representative of his year on the Athletic 
Executive, and on his final year also captained the Rugby team. 
He gazed upon the various paths of advanced education and 
finally decided to enter the Faculty of Medicine. In his first year 
he acted as representative on the Executive of the Medical Society 
for '09. Norman intends to locate in Vancouver, B.C.

An Absurdity 

/^Vl T R worthy clinician, 
^^ with a resigned look 
upon his intellectual face, 
waited till the members of 

the clinic had leisurely 
grouped themselves about 
the bed and then, putting 
his watch back into his 
pocket, said : ' ' Xow, er — er 
(what is your name ? ) Ah ! 
yes, McBreath. Well. .Mr. 
McBreath. what do you 
notice about this patient?" 
Now. as a matter of fact, the most striking point w r as his un- 
canny resemblance to Rusty Westilliger, and as Bill hesitated 
t<> mention this, owing to his inherent dislike of hurting his 
patient's feelings, the clinician said: "Well, now, start 
from the beginning — from his head, downwards." The 
reference to the patient's hair was too much and Bill went 
down for the count, and the doctor's optics were focussed 
on the next man in that interrogatory way peculiar to 
clinicians. The next victim was Polly Swanhill, but Polly. 
alas, had his orbs intently focussed on a blue and white 
uniform two beds away; he came hack to earth with a dull 
thud and an ejaculation, "What the oh! :'." as Bill Skater 
dug an elbow into his ribs. "Well. sir. er — ah — his face is 
a little flushed," with that rising inflection on the last part 
of I lie remark so characteristic of our answers: "Just a 
little bit louder, please, so thiil all can hear you." Here- 
upon Polly blew up his lungs another two inches and 

boomed it forth again. "Ah! yes. but gentlemen" (in a 
deprecatory way) "you must have seen that this is not 
uncommon in men who have red — that is in individuals of 
this complexion." Then Polly, considering that his contribu- 
tion to science was complete, returned to his interrupted 
survey of the fairy of mercy. The clinician again trained 
his optics upon Polly, but the position was neatly saved by 
Bill D'Arcy. who came to the rescue with such a voluminous 
history of the patient that the clinic sighed, rubbed its 
eyes and settled itself for another nap. Bill, however, 
was not to have the Moor for long, as from the back" of the 
clinic came a jostling, and a man with a pendulous abdomen 
(diagnosed some time ago by Medlar as ascites) pushed his 
way to the front and a fat face, outrigged with double 
windows, peered over Bill's left scapula. "Well. Mr. 
Squinal, what do you find on palpation .'". Two fat hands 
reached out over the aforesaid abdomen and fastened on 
the patient's chest like the tentacles of an octupus. or 
whatever aquatic beast it is that fastens on chests. Then 
the hands slowly passed to the lower costal margin and the 
patient was asked to take a long breath, "Now. Mr. 
Squinal. can the normal liver in that position ever be felt 
on palpation?" "Well, sir, I may say that in travelling 
through the country I have met about ninety per cent, of 
the doctors, and the general opinion of the medical pro- 
fession seems to he that it cannot." A snort of disgusl was 
heard in the rear, and the Woman beak of Mary clove the 
air till he was within easy speaking distance, when he was 
heard to remark: "W-w-well. s-s-s-sir, you can always 
p-p-p-palpate the 1-1-1-liver" (here he stopped to get up 


steam again") and his further remarks, consisting of what 
Osier. Allbut, Drechfeld, Rolleston and others said, were 
punctuated by kicks from behind and muttered injunctions, 
such as "Go to it. Mary." "Get into it with both feet," 
and others of less classic type. Everybody's patience 
having finally been exhausted. Mary was ruthlessly passed 
to the rear, there to meditate upon his wrongs and the 

The ever resourceful clinician now changed his tactics, 
and, having awakened Bill MeSnide from his coma by a few 
well-chosen words, asked him to auscultate the heart. Hill 
forthwith essayed to draw his stethescope from his pocket. 
Somehow, it seemed to stick, but with a heave-to was 
finally extracted, bnt not. however, without breaking the 
jam. and when the scattered contents of his pocket were 
picked up they were seen to consist of one Star Theatre 
programme, one Calgary Eye-Opener, one package Old 
Gold cigarettes, plug of briar, and a knot of pink baby 
ribbon. The spoil, when returned to Bill, consisted only 
of the programme and the knot of baby ribbon. Bill, how- 
ever, bent to his task, and having listened for at least five 
minutes gave forth the dictum that the patient had a 
decrotic pulse. This, however, did not seem to take well 
with our worthy pedagogue, so MeSnide slid to the rear, 
where he encountered Puff, and both went out to console 
themselves with borrowed dopes. 

The clinic, by this time having been cut down by several 
convenient emergency calls, passed on to the next bed. 

which contained a patient with a right-sided pneumonia. 
The clinician here called upon Jack Sunningham to percuss 
the chest, and in answer to the request a mountain of meat 
crashed its way to the bedside. The patient was at first 
alarmed at the colossal size, but after being assured that 
those things were really Jack's hands and not Ins feet, he 
allowed Jack to start percussion. At each stroke of the 
hammer the patient's teeth began to rattle so that someone 
at the back of the clinic was moved to remark: "Oh, stop 
yer tieklin', Jock." and the nurse, always humane, closed 
the window, as she thought the patient's teeth were chatter- 
ing from the cold. By the time several teeth had been 
shaken out. Jack had finished his awful work, and when 
asked as to his conclusions said that he had got a cracked- 
pot sound and bronchial breathing. Contrary to Jack's- 
expectation, the clinician would not allow this latter con- 
clusion to be grouped with his findings, and turned to the 
rest of the clinic to ask what would produce the form, when 
some vapid youth was heard to remark that he thought 
it was a cracked-ribs sound. -Jack turned such a baleful 
glance upon the offending youth (with just such a glance 
must he have quelled rebellious natives in India) that the 
latter fled, and thus lost his attendance. As nobody could 
answer the question satisfactorily, the clinic was dismissed 
with a feAV remarks as to its lamentable lack of knowledge 
and faulty technique, and we scooted out to the autopsy 
theatre to get there in time for the anatomical diagnosis.

Our young and clever friend commenced life in the county of 
I. .million on the Mh of July, 1887. He obtained his Matriculation 
at Watford Mich School, but long before this was completed he 
had mapped out for himself a medical career. Ambition, along 
with his ability to acquire knowledge, has made the obstacles, 
which we meet in our course, easy for him to mount. Having 
successfully finished his University course his ambition is by no 
means satisfied, and from the past results we can confidently 
predict a brilliant future for him.

he attended the High School at Stirling, from which he matricu- 
lated in 1903. In the fall of that year he proceeded to Varsit}', 
.joining the B. and P. Class of '07, and on graduating continued 
his scientific studies with the class of '09, Medicine. Zeal in his 
chosen profession, foresight in business, honor and integrity in all 
things, -are prominent among Charlie's characteristics. His straight- 
forward manner, jovialty anil sterling worth have won for him 
many fast friends, and in our class memories he will form a very 
considerable part. Charlie has great hopes for our Canadian West,

Bert had the good fortune to spend his early days on a farm. 
and Perth county claims the honor of being his birthplace. His 
life was comparatively uneventful till lie decided to enrich the 
ranks of the profession by studying Medicine. He entered Wood- 
stock College, where he won the applause of the school by 
completing the work of two years in one. In '05 lie came to 
Toronto, and after taking two years of Arts' work he entered 
Medicine in the class of '09. He has been a faithful friend of 
the Medical Y.M.C.A.. of which he is President, and the Society 
owes much of its present success to his efforts. He has the 
qualities which will bring him prosperity in his profession, and 
will make him a credit to his Alma Mater. 


"Deep. sir. deep. —and devilish sly." 

Verne hails from Avlmer, Ontario, where he was born some 
twenty odd years ago. While still quite young he started to 
attend public and Sabbath schools, and, being an apt pupil, was 
soon through with both. As time moved on the Collegiate and 
Business College of his native town furnished the mental exercise 
necessary for the successful prosecution of his work. Later he 
spent five years in the hardware business, and then decided to 
study Medicine, entering Varsity in the fall of 1904. His genial 
disposition has made him a favorite, not only among the fellows of 
his own year, but also throughout the school, and we are confident 
that his pluck and perseverance will win him a high position in his 
chosen profession. 



The subject of this sketch is an old Huron county boy, who spent 
his early life on the farm, and there acquired the nucleus for that

ambitious and of a receptive mind, turned his attention towards a

made for himself a distinct place in college life, and such that those 
of us who know him best feel that in him we have ' ' the flower of

"A picker up of learning's crumbs." 
Bill picked up his first crumbs in the educational institutes at 
Guelph. lie added some more slices as a Natural Science student 
in University College, graduating in 'Oo with a fine record of 
scholarship. He has now completed his "loaf" (referring to the 
crumbs) by a course in Medicine. Though not expert in any branch 
of Mechanics or Mathematics, he is well versed in the properties of 
certain spheres, and has a good practical knowledge of the theory 
of probabilities. He may not he a genius, though he never admits it, 
hut he has at least an "infinite capacity for work," which, joined 
to exceptional ability, will certainly make him a prominent and 
successful physician.

October 22nd, 1885. His preliminary education was obtained in the 

Newmarket High School, from which he graduated in '05 with a 
Junior Matriculation Certificate. That same fall he joined the

The subject of this sketch was born in Wentworth county, Ontario, 
in the year 1882. After receiving his early education in the District 
School at Kirkwall, he attended the Gait Collegiate Institute, from 
which institution he graduated in the year 1900. After spending the 
following five years in teaching in Ontario and in Winnipeg, Mani- 
toba, he determined on entering upon the study of Medicine, and 
registered in Toronto with the present class in 1905. During his 
college career, George has proved himself to be a student of no

has won the general friendship and confidence of his classmates, and 
a successful career is predicted for him in his chosen profession. 



Mr. Williams, born near Knniskillen, Durham county, Ontario, 
after his barefoot days on the farm, attended Bowmanville High 
School, from which (after an interval as public school teacher, with 
Mr. Terwilleger of '09 Mods as a senior pupil) he took his first- 
class certificate. Entering Trinity Medical in '99, he completed his 
freshman year with first-class honors. He then became interested 
in journalistic work, owning and publishing at different times Events

Medicine ever haunted him; he purchased his present drug business 
in '05, and a year later joined the Varsity Mods of '09. Mr. Wil-

First in peace, 

First in war, 

First in the hearts of the faculty." 

N October the first, 1906, a long line of stalwart 
young men might have been seen standing 
along the hall of the Chemistry and Mining 
Building. This was the first appearance of 
the great and glorious class of '09. 
Never before in the history of the faculty had such 
promising material for Engineering and athletics been seen. 
Sophomores and seniors, a.s usual, severely criticized the 
"poor f resides. " promising horrible tortures and furious 
battles for their submission. It was not long, however, 
before the "sophs." were bound to confess that '09 was 
"all right." Better support to rugby, hockey and other 
faculty and University functions was never given than by 
'09. Nor was '09 behind in battle. Many a time and oft 
have the old walls of S.P.S. resounded with the cries of 
"Naughty-Nine" — as. with ink, shoe-blacking, water, and 
that delicious mixture of all three, the warriors of '09 
would hurl themselves with resistless force on their enemies, 
the "sophs." Or, again, resorting to that friend in need — 
the hose — '09 would clear the halls and hold dominion — 
"monarchs of all they survey" — until, 'midst crashing 

glass, the voice of the peacemaker might he heard saying: 
"Now. gentlemen, this must cease." With this and a final: 

Che-he ! Che-hi ! Che-ha-ha-ha ! 

School of Science ; Naughty-Nine ! 

Rah! Rah! Rah! 
the victorious class would retire to dream of past victories 
and future exploits. 

But. war aside. '09 was 
"wondrous wise." For, if 
statistics might be found, they 
would show that with the 
advent of '09 the amount of 
teaching required per unit 
head per year was consider- 
ably less than for any previous 
year in the history of the 
faculty. With that quick per- 
ception for which they became 
noted, '09 men could grasp 
everything from the elements 
of trigonometry to the deli-

cate calculations of the area of the shadow thrown by an 

hyperboloid of revolution on the cross-section of a shaft 

hanger when seen from the electrostatic point of view. But 

"Alas! regardless of their doom, 

The little victims play. 

No thought have they of ills to come. 

No care beyond to-day." 
For examinations must come. and. in the light of midnight 
oil. "09 retired to prepare for the last test of their pros- 
perous year — amount of learning absorbed. 

With profound regret '(l!) disbanded for its first summer 
vacation from S.P.S. Far and wide the industrious mem- 
bers of the class were scattered — some to the mine, some to 
the machine-shop, others to the survey, and the rest to a 
thousand and one situations requiring alert and intelligent 
men — for the course at S.P.S. requires practical work as 
well as theory. 

With sadly thinned ranks, but with renewed vigor, two 
hundred men of '09 again lined the halls on a certain fall 
day id' 1907 — not as freshmen, however, but as sophomores. 
Back they came, with a feeling of returning to "Home. 
Sweet Home" — gazing with fond recollections on certain 
inerasible ink spots on the walls, the only monuments to 
greal and glorious victories in the past. 

But 'Oil came back to win the Mulock Cup, so nearly 
captured in their first year, and it is only a matter id' 
history how they overcame every team and carried off the 
silver trophy. 

Willi the wane of the football season. 'Oil began to turn 
their attention to that all-important point of initiating the 
freshmen. The class of 1910 was large and '09 knew it. 
To initiate the ' ' fresh ies. "that is. to do it properly, required 
considerable skilful engineering. As to an accidental meet- 
ing — that was impossible. For. with most marvellous fore- 

sightedness, a very wise and "foxy" body known as the 
"Faculty" had so decreed it that the classes of 1909 and 
1910 had no occasion to meet, either going to or coming 
from lectures. Now. the '<)9 drafting room was in the 
Convocation Hall building. Also, it so happened, that the 
third year drafting room was in the same building as that 
of the first year. And, since freshmen must needs draft, 
here lay the great clue which first presented itself to the 
deep-thinking minds of '09. For this noble purpose, the 
class of '08 kindly gave '09 the free use of their drafting 
room. So events came to pass. that, on a certain November 
day. as the freshmen ascended to their lair, they were 
gently persuaded by willing hands to go and explore the 
mysteries of the third year drafting room: and here, won- 
derful to relate, a most strange thing happened. For. as 
the freshmen gazed with awe about them, their beautiful 
youthful countenances were artistically daubed with that 
dainty facial cream known as "12 in 1." But their humilia- 
tion was not yet complete, for it is in the annals of the 
"School" that no scrap may be considered complete without 
a generous yet scientific application of ILO. So it was 
necessary for '09 to "tap" each individual freshman who 
fell into their loving hands. The result was that every 
victim presented to his sympathizing comrades more the 
appearance of a black, drowned pole-cat than that of an 
august, lordly freshman. 

With the end of their sophomoric year '0!) again dis- 
banded. Again, engineers and superintendents were bom- 
barded on every side with petitions for work. Again were 
the mines and shops invaded and the forest about the 
survey camp fires resounded with startling stories of the 
famous battles and tales of the valiant deeds of '09. 

With the return of the fall one hundred and sixty-four 
of the class returned — as seniors. Some had been left

Than go to the depths of constructive design" 
was not far wrong. For, between exploring those, depths 
and ascending to the giddy heights of astronomy. tln j senior 
of '09 found it hard to ascertain where he stood. 

Turning over the following pages, the reader will find 
photographs and the individual biographies of all the 
members of old '09. From them he may distinguish between 
the chemists, the future mechanical, mining, civil, chemical 
and electrical engineers; he may pick out the scholars and 
athletes. But, to the graduate of '09, there lies between 
the lines far more than that put down in cold type. For. 
as he turns the pages in after years and reads the biog- 
raphies of his former classmates, he will vividly recall the 
bygone times and the happy days of student life at S.P.S. 
A- In- reads his cars will ring with the stirring yell of — 

"Toike-oike. Toike-oike, 
Allum te Challum te ( !hay 

School of Science. School of Science, 

Hurray. Hurray. Hurray ! 
With the recollection of this yell comes the remembrance 
of Mulock and Jennings Cup games, so energetically con- 
tested for (and usually won I by the teams of old '09. As 
the graduate's mind Lingers he will recall those days of 
old. when, with a cheerinc'. noisy, happy crowd of fellow- 
students, he used to serenade the ladies' colleges and iu 
general "paint the town red" on those famous Hallowe'en 
parades. Nor. turning to gentler things, will any member 
of 'III) ever forget the graduating dinner, the '09 dance, or 
the merry nights spent at theatre parties. And last, but 
not least, he will fondly recall the kindly face of the 
Honorary President of the graduating class. Dr. Ellis. 
remembering his witty speeches and ever-prevailing good 
humor. Finally, may it ever he said, that the favorite 
toast of the graduate of '09 will always be — 

"Here's to the dean and the faculty. 
Here's to the School of Science 
Here's to the times we used to have. 
Here's to old Naughty-Nine.

' ' To follow knowledge like a sinking .star. 
Beyond the utmost range of human thought." 

The subject of tins sketch had, some two and twenty years 
ago, the unusual t'ortunte of beginning his terrestrial work at Eden, 
and, like Adam of old, soon partook of the forbidden fruit of 
the tree of knowledge. Consequently, he had to leave Eden and 
is still seeking a haven of rest. After graduating from Tillson- 
hurg High School he entered Aylmer Collegiate, where he discovered 
his thirst for science and decided to come to that fountain of 
knowledge — S. P. S. Entering the civil section of '09 he has 
remained with the fortunates and there is no doubt but that "Art" 
will wax strong and mighty in his chosen profession. 



"Universally known anil hind by nil.'' 
W. .1. Boulton arrived in Wallaeeburg in L884, crying for a 
lacrosse stick and a football. So with these lie started to school, 
matriculating in 1901. "Hill" entered the "School" with '09, 
taking honors in his first and second years. His specialty being 
hydraulics, he spent two years on the Georgian Hay Canal and 
one on the proposed Welland Canal survey, lie has taken an active 
part in sports, playing on the Intermediate and Senior School 
Association teams ami on the I ntennediate and Senior School 

Rugby tennis, and manage, I the lutori bate School Hockey team 

and the Senior School Association team in L908. As vice-president 
of the Engineering Society he showed his executive ability, but. 
as a charter mber of the " Mock Club," he excelled. 


"Keeps his counsel, does his duty. 
Cleaves to friends and lori th beauty." 
Edward Wingfield Browne hails from London, Ontario, where 
he prepared himself for the University at the London Collegiate 
Institute. He passed his matriculation in 1904 and entered the 
civil engineering course in the fall of 1906. ' ' Buster, as he is 
generally called, has always maintained a good stand in his classes, 
but at the same time he has taken an active interest in all branches 
of University life. Though not known as an athlete, he ' ' dabbles 
in sport for his own benefit; though not a "plug," he is a faithful 
student and a good reader, and though inclined to lie quiet he is 
one of the best to meet. 



"They say best men are moulded out of faults." 
John Alexander Buchanan, familiarly known as •'Buck," was 
born in Comber, Essex County, in the year 1887. 1'p to his seven 
teenth year his time was spent partly in Comber public and high 
schools ami partly on his father's farm. Having secured his 
matriculation, and having become imbued with engineering spirit. 
"Buck" entered the School with the class of 'i)7. Owing to 
delays arising from sickness two years were lost, tints leaving 
him with the class of '(19. During vacations "Buck" has been 
lured northward, where three times he has proven his sterling 
character and backbone on northern surveys. In wishing "Buck" 
success and fortune in his chosen profession We know his ability 
and winning ways will assure him such. 



' ' God Tcnows, my son, 
By what indirect ways and crooked paths, 
H '<■ met this crown. ' ' 

M. G. Cameron was born in Peterborough, Ont., and received his 
early training in the public schools of that city. His matriculation 
was obtained in the Peterborough Collegiate Institute, from which 
he graduated in 1905. "Seotty, " as he is familiarly known, entered 
rhe School in 1906, and decided to take up Civil Engineering. 
This he chose as the least of five evils. In fitting himself for this 
branch of science, he secured positions on the Trent Valley Canal 
<luring the summer months, thus securing some valuable experience. 



"Nature has framed some' strange fellows in her time." 

Victor S. Chesnut, born in Toronto on April 17th, 1888, is only 
one of many in his family. To be exact, he is known as "Nuts 
Secnndus, ' ' and is followed by a myriad of other young Chesnuts, 
alike aspiring to be Engineers. Victor was a student of St. Andrew 's 
College before coming down to the School, where he graduated 
successfully, though not with honors. Mr. Chesnut states" that the 
last event worth recording in his life was when he was born, and 
we may only hope that he will live long to enjoy the privilege 
accorded to him on April 17th, 1888. 


"Great thoughts, great feelings, come to him, 
Like instincts, unawares. 

Gordon was born in Halifax, N.S., in 1885, lived for several 
years in Paris, Opt., and then moved to Owen Sound. He continued 
his studies in the Collegiate there, and graduated in 1904, winning- 
Judge Hatton 's medal and the third Edward Blake Scholarship in 
General Proficiency. He took Mathematics for one year at Varsity ; 
but a year spent on construction work near Fort William led him 
to choose Civil Engineering as his profession. Entering the School 
with the class of '09, Gordon has taken honor standing with several 
first places throughout his course, has filled several offices in the 
Y. M. C. A. Executive and Debating Club, represented his year in 
the Students ' Parliament, and found time between sessions to dig 
ditches and mines in Cobalt. 


"His form accorded with a mind, 
Lively and anient, frank and kind.'' 

J. G. Collinson was born and spent his early days in the railroad 
city of St. Thomas, and no doubt the contemplation of its many 
bridges and railways inspired him with the ambition that he, too, 
would become a builder. With that end in view he matriculated 
from the St. Thomas Collegiate Institute and entered the Faculty 
of Applied Science with the year '09, taking up the work in Civil 
Engineering. While he has not aspired to undergraduate office, he 
has always taken a lively interest in student affairs, and his quiet 
manner and his true worth has won him a sure place in the esteem 
of his fellow-students. 




" And fortune smiled on his early life, 
Inspiring him bravely to meet all strije." 
In the county of York, sonic scene of miles north of the "Queen 
City of the North," lies the little town of Aurora. Here it was 
that George W. Coltham first saw the light in the year 1890. He 
received his primary education at the Aurora public school, and 
later entered the Eigh School there. With Senior Leaving standing 
he entered the School of Practical Science with the class of '09. 
As a Student, he is not only in the foremost rank, but by his genial 
disposition and ready acquiescence lie has created hosts of friends. 
His college life has been eminently successful, and his sterling 
qualities augur well for success in his chosen protesion. 



" Whatsot ver i In/ hum/ findeth in do, il<> it with thy might." 
A graduate of Hamilton Collegiate Institute, 1903, Junior Matricu- 
lation, Dallyn is a Hamilton old hoy. and, like most I lamiltonians, is 
a little COCky. lie was, however, licked into shape for class id' '09 

by spending three years in office work ami draughting, the experience 
being divided between Crand Trunk Railway Cdmpany, the Hamilton 
Cataracl Power Company, the Canadian Westinghouse Company, and 

the Massey Harris Company id' Toronto, in the experimental depart 
ment. Dally has taken a keen interest in Y. M. ( '. A. work of 
the School; even so far as to lead 'The Wayward Steers' Bible 'las-.. 
We forgive him. So do we, !•'. A. 


"Conspicuous for mirth inn! laughter 
Tin fellows first, tin ladies after." 
There was great rejoicing in Limerick. Ireland, on October 31st, 
1887, when Eyre was smuggled into the world. The •' Prize Limerick" 
was soon smuggled across to his present home in London. Ontario. 
Here his boyish years were spent, until he graduated from the 
London Collegiate Institute in 1905, Forthwith he entered the School, 
in the Civil Engineering course, and at once won popularity with 
his fellow-Students, as evidenced by his election to the Recording 
Secretaryship of the Engineering Society. He believes in enjoying 
all sides of University life; and his unassuming manner and ready 
Irish wit have made him many friends, whose best wishes follow 
him for certain success in the Engineering world. 



"Still achieving, still pursuing." 
Davis, Harvey Campbell, was born in the fair town of Burling- 
ton. He was educated at the Hamilton Collegiate Institute, and 
came to the School in 1905. Harvey was eminently successful in his 
first year, but the pleasures id' college life, combined with the vicissi- 
tudes of examinations were too much for him in his second year. 
so he cast in his lot with '09. Harvey has played Rugby on the 
Mulock Teams throughout his course, and also on Varsity 111. He 
is one of the best supporters of all University affairs, setting a splen- 
did example to all freshmen who follow him. His many friends 
predict a brilliant future in whatever sphere of life he may cast 
his lot. 




"Yet I have not seen so likely a man." 
Like all others, he had to be born. 'Twas in Indianapolis that 
Irve first beheld this fair globe, but migrated early in years to 
St. Catharines, Ontario, where he eventually matriculated in 1904. 
Being scientifically calehated, he decided to enter S. P. S., with an 
eye on <ivil Engineering. He not only has been successful as a 
student, taking honors in his second year, but has also successfully 
wrestled with athletics. live has played for old '09 in both 
hockey and rugby, and has also played on 'Varsity II. Hockey 
Team. Despite his weakness for the feminine, he has done exceed- 
ingly well, and we wish him the heartiest success at graduation. 


"Lands lie could measure, 
Terms and tides presage, 
Ami e'en the story ran,-~ 
That In could gaugi . ' ' 
Miles O'Reilly Duff, familiarly "Pat," came, saw, and conquered. 
From the hill of Hamilton, he has concerned himself with the prob- 
lems of the planes, and conquered, perchance, a few knotty points 
of science, and the naughtier hearts of co-eds fair. "Pat" has 
creditably escaped scholarships, engagements, and like blemishes upon 
his character. Nevertheless his admirers know him as a square 
fellow and on the level, and have their own opinion as to his capa- 
bilities. "They only who live with a man can write his life,'' says 
Doctor Johnson, "and lew people who have lived with a man know 
what to remark about him ''; this my excuse for brevity. 


"One said: Thy life in thine to male or mar, 
To flicker treble or lo soar a star." 

He first became a Canadian subject in the year 1890, at a 
small village named Shelburne. He obtained his primary education 
there and also attended High School in the same town. He spent 
a year at High School in Orangeville, taking up senior work, enrolled 
in 1906 with the Civil Section of '09. He has been successful in 
both first and second year examinations, and has shown some ability 
in his work, so we can look forward to a bright future for him 
without much chance of being disappointed. 



"A wee bit scrubbed boy. 

He received his early education at Eat Portage and matriculated 
in 1903. To gain practical experience in Engineering, " Fergie, " 
with dreams of concrete structures and yawning bridges, served with 
the C. P. R. construction department for two years. In 1906 he 
entered the School and enrolled amongst the Civils. The influence 
of University life soon changed his ambitions from Engineering to 
athletics, and he is famed as an ardent supporter of the University 
Rugby team. Throughout his course Fergie had the reputation 
amongst the School men of being a "good 'mi, ' ' and the class 
of '09 are proud of his exploding countenance and rippling chuckle.

"The golden silence of the Greek." 

Fuzzy, or, if you prefer it, William John, was horn in Windsor 
in 1884. He received his early education at the Windsor Collegiate, 
from whence he matriculated in 1901. In the fall of the same year 
he entered the School of Science, Civil Engineering being the attrac- 
tion. His course at the School was interrupted by two years spenl 
with the Detroit United Railway, but the lure of the 'old haunts 
drew him back again to graduate. Fuzzy is quiet and unobtrusive 
in manner, but, to quote an old adage, "still waters run deep," and 
we arc inclined to the opinion that Fuzzy is a deep 'un. 


" But 'twasn't merely this and that {which all the world

Of Scotch descent, Alan Fraser, the subject of this short sketch. 
was born in London, England, in the autumn of 1886. Educated 
first at Tonbridge School, in the county of Kent, and later at Neuen- 
heim College, Heidelburg, Germany, he spent the two years previous 
to joining the class of 1909 in gaining practical training and experi- 
ence in the Southern States of America. For some three years lie 
has served with the 48th Highlanders, and perhaps it is the Scotch 
blood in him which is accountable tor the fact that lie hears music 
in the swirl of the bagpipes. For the rest: a shrewd observer, pos- 
sessed of a fine sense of humor, generous-hearted, and a man who 
' ' rings true. ' ' 



nlil knows nothing of its great nun.'' 

Glover, Arthur Edward, was born in Beaverton in the year 1888. 
His primary education was received at Beaverton public school, and 
later he learned a few things at Orillia Collegiate. In the fall of 
19(14 he entered the School with the '07 class, but after his first 
year, Art decided to obtain some practical experience, so he spent 
two years in railroading and land surveying before returning to com- 
plete his course. He has consistently shown the practical, self- 
reliant character evolved from practical training, and has sought 
no offices and received none, and taken a good standing in the 
• lass lists. He has bright prospects for a career of usefulness in 
his chosen profession, so his fellow-students will follow his progress 



"For In is long and lank and brown, 
As is tli ribbed sea-sand." 

Victor Goad was born in London, Eng., on 24th May; hence 
his name. After several years spent in Dulwich College, he came t<> 
Canada and entered U. C. C. In 1900 he entered the illustrious 
year of '09. Let's us hope his luck keeps him with it. 




"Sunny Jim, morning, night, and noon, before and after — 

Dave first s;i\v the light of day at Ivan, Ontario, whence he 
naturally drifted to the Forest City for his collegiate education. 
Prom London he entered the University in 1905, and after one year 
spent in Arts, started his course in Civil Engineering at the School. 
''.Iciiics'' intends tn complete his fourth year here, after which he 
will devote his time to railroading, having acquired a taste for 
that work during his summers spent in Northern Ontario. Dave 
keeps well up with his work, and that genial smile of his has won 
for aim many friends. Interested in the athletic side of student 
life, he has played on the Junior 'Varsity Rugby championship teams 
of 11MI7 and I '.his, ns well as being interested in other lines of sports 
to a lesser degree. 



"Charmed by his music ; trees starting from the ground, 

Have followed with delight the powerful sound." 
It was at Uxbridge thai the hero of this sketch first voiced his 
protest against the wrongs and injustice of this cold and unsympa 
thetic world. Entering school al his native town, they turned him 
■ nil with a teacher's cerificate and a great fondness for outdoor 
sports. lie then entered the teaching profession, but beginning to 
realize his ignorance he came, seeking knowledge, to that great 
fountain-head, S. I', s., entering with the class of 'tut Civils. His 
merry whistle ami genial disposition have made him a general favorite 
with his classmates. 


Born in Toronto only twenty years ago. "Jerry" lias taken 
advantage of his many opportunities. The Model School and Upper 
Canada College gave him his early training, and he passed wefl at 
the head of his class, taking the McGill Matriculation, and is an 
honor man at the School. He has also been prominent in sports, 
having been a credit to the cricket team. School Champion Mulock 
''up Team 1907, Track Club, and 'Varsity Intermediate Football cham- 
pions 1908. His many friends will follow his career with interest, 
and that it will be a successful one all feel confident. 



"And wha winna wish guid luck In his cause 
May n( ver guid Inch In their /a'." 

He was born in 1885, in the very midst of this great city: He 
received his early education in St. Andrew's College, graduating at 

that worthy institution during 1906. In the fall of that year 
he entered the School, and following his natural preference registered 
in "Civil." The wisdom of this step was amply proven not only 
by his academic progress, but also by the rapid advancement which 
he made during his vacations on the t '. \. R. construction. "Billy"' 
is a broad-minded and merry youngster, with a lino sen^e of propor- 
tion and a true and carefully concealed talent for Engineering, but 
it is his personality and his genius for making ami keeping his 
friends that makes him in all senses the besl ever. 




"Better to sing than to worry." 

He began his career in 1887, in the city of London. After 
getting over the howling period, he entered the public school. From 
thence some years later he went to the London Collegiate. Dave 
matriculated in 190(5. In the following October he joined the Civils 
of '09, where he at once became a general favorite among his class- 
mates on account of his jovial, good-natured manner. He spent two 
summers with the T. & N. O. Ry., thereby gaining valuable experi- 
ence. Dave has that rare quality of getting along in the world, and 
that, together with his sound common sense, will play no little 
part in the success we have prophesied for him. Here's to Dave! 
If we had but more like him ! 


"Oli, why doth thine <!i' gleam so bright, C. 0. Hay? 
Tin mother's at home, the maid may not roam — 
She never will meet thee to-night." 

Charles O. Hay, born 13th May, 1882, at Falkenberg, Ontario; 
entered Pickering College in 1»00 and graduated 1903. He entered 
the School in 1906, and has since taken a great part in athletics, 
having played for junior, intermediate, and senior School, and also 
'Varsity III. and II. Though he does not intend to follow up 
Engineering, it has not been time wasted, as many things have 
happened during his three years. Here's luck to him! 


"We all loved him anil liked him besides." 

He made his debut in Toronto in 1886, where he received his 
primary training at Lansdowne, and matriculated at Harbord Col- 
legiate. ' ' Hogie, ' ' as he is commonly called, entered the School 
with the class of '08, of which he was elected President. Staying out 
a year, he entered his second year with '09. Having chosen railroad 
engineering as his specialty, he followed that line, putting in a 
summer on the C. N. Q. R., and was appointed assistant resident 
engineer on the G. T. R. Middle Division in the fall of '05. As a 
student, he has taken honor standing, and is a warm friend of all. 
His paper on ' ' Railroad Engineering, ' ' given before the Engineering- 
Society, was considered the finest student paper given in 1907. 
Among the future great engineers of Canada, the name of George 
Hogarth is bound to appear. 



C. H. Hopkins was born in the county of Victoria, near Lindsay, 
on November 2nd, 1886. After successfully passing through the 
Lindsay public and High schools, he shook the clay off his feet 
and started his course in Civil Engineering at Toronto University. 
His recreation took the form of Rugby, he having played with the 
'Varsity Seconds, Intercollegiate Champions of 1807 and 1908, and 
the Intermediate School Team, Mulock Cup Champions 1907. Besides 
which he has also made a host of friends, who all say ''Sis" is a 
jolly good fellow. 




George C. Hoshal first saw the light of day in Niagara Falls on 
August 9, L886. I lis early education was received from the Public 
Schools and the Collegiate Institute of that city, until he obtained 
his Junior Matriculation. On matriculating he entered the City 
Engineer's Office and remained there during the following three 
years, procuring during that time valuable engineering experience 
along municipal lines. In the fall of 1900 George registered in the 
Civil Engineering course in Applied Science, and since that time 
has been a regular student. One summer he spent on municipal 
work with the city Engineer at Niagara Falls, and last summer was 
spent on reinforced concrete construction. 


''Friend la truth in soul sincere." 
It was in 1881, in the county of Oxford, near Woodstock, that 
John Edwin Jackson first became aware of this tremendous cosmos; 
Finally, in possession of all the knowledge (presumably t of the 
rural seminary, he entered Woodstock Collegiate. Always generous 
in nature and believing that ''it is more blessed," etc.. his record 
for the next three years is one of earnest endeavor to enlighten the 
benighted youth of his native county. However, in 1906, the S. P. S. 
gladly received him, and has since learned to recognize in him a 
gentleman of quiet dignity, devoted to his pursuits, and with 
scholastic attainments of no mean order. 



"For blessings ever /rail mi virtuous deeds,

lie lirst saw the light of day the seventh of November, 1S87, at 
Wiarton. There were spent some of the happiest days of his 
life. Under the able tutorship of Principal Bright lie learned his 

A B ( ' 's. After a four years' course at the High School, having 

obtained his full Senior Leaving, he undertook his studies with the 
class of '09 Civils. His progress at the S. P. S. has I n brilliant, 

as is attested by the honor standing taken at the examinations; nor 
has his interest been in liooks and instruments alone; on the gridiron 
wo hear of him; he was a member of the senior football team. In 

social circles he is also welcomed. 



''First anil foremost, in I. on mill Bui Hi.'' 
Eric \V. James, popularly known as '' Doc," made his ihbm 
on August 12th, lss.~). at High Bluff. Manitoba. His primary educa- 
tion was received at Portage la Prairie. At an early age ho 
showed an aptitude for Engineering. Leaving the Collegiate, he 
assisted in installing ejector sewers in Portage. " Doc." is a 
very patriotic fellow, as is shown by the fact that he assisted in 
the location and construction of the C. P. K. and G. '1'. h\. and 
thus in developing our Great West. To add to his already immense 
Engineering knowledge, he enrolled in s. P. s. with '09, In the 

Spring of L908, '' Hoc." felt the need of help with his studies, so 

joined the Benedict ranks, wedding Miss Muriel Ironsides, of 





' ' .1 dkiii o' independent mind.'' 
Charles Carlisle Johnson was born and brought up in the eity 
of Toronto. Having received his primary education in one of the 
eity public schools, he entered Pafkdale Collegiate Institute, where 
he became noted as a leader in escapades. Charlie always had a 
distinct fondness for scientific studies. He matriculated in 1905, 
and, after spending another year on scientific subjects, entered the 
civil Engineering course at the School. Here, as member of the 
class of Naught-Nine, he lias maintained a high standing throughout 
his course. He has the marked essentials of a successful Engineer — 
practical ideas, thoroughness, and integrity of character. 


"Who, after till, commands our praise, 

In .spite nf liis peculiar ways, 

While others harvest all the gains, 
Thai spring from his prolific brains?" 
• 'hailes was introduced to a weary world near Mooretown. He 
navigated the local schools safely and matriculated from Sarnia 
Collegiate Institute. In '07 he took his Arts degree in Astronomy 
and Physics, and, like Alexander the Great, looked for other worlds 
to conquer. In the fall of the same year he joined the aspirants of 
'09 Civils. He has taken a keen interest in all School affairs, is 
an excellent swimmer and gymnast, and has been an earnest sup- 
porter of athletics in general. If earnest work and fidelity of pur- 
pose count for success, "Charlie" will have no difficulty in attaining 
a high position in his chosen profession. 




"No matter, no mailer, so say his frit mis. 
Whalerer he starts he sure enough ends." 

William James Johnston, popularly known as "Guinnis, " was 
born at Orangeville on January 31st, 1882. He received his early 
education in St. Catharines, matriculating in 1903, after which he 
studied law. Then, after spending a year on the Welland Canal 
survey, he enrolled in Civil Engineering at S. P. S. with '09, of 
which (lass he was elected President. He also took an active part 
in sports, holding the positions of Manager of the Junior School 
Hockey Team in 1907, and Varsity II. Hockey Team in 1908, and the 
'Varsity Senior Rugby Team in 1908. As President of the famous 
Bock Club, he made it a promising social organization. As a student, 
he is unparalleled, and his many friends predict for him an honor- 
able and dignified position in the Engineering world. 


' ' What is writ is writ — 
Would it irerc worthier.' ' 

He was born at Gamebridge in 1884. He received his training 
preparatory to entering the School at Orillia Collegiate Institute. 
He soon developed a taste for Civil Engineering, and, feeling the 
need of the training procurable only at the S. P. S., had himself 
enrolled as one of the "meek and peaceful." During his college 
life he has won the hearty good wishes of his fellows, and will 
leave with their best wishes for his success. 

Second Field Co. Canadian Engineers 

ORMERLY known as the Toronto 
Engineers and, at that time, 
wholly recruited from Univer- 
sity students, this Company was 
organized in the spring of 1!)()1 
by Prof. W. R. Lang, recently 
appointed to the chair of Chem- 
istry in the University and who 
was qualified by twelve years' 
service in the auxiliary forces 
of the Old Country, to train and 
command a unit of this kind. 

In the fall of the year the 
Company was recruited to full 
strength (55) and took part in 
the mobilization and review of 
the troops of the 2nd Military District on the occasion of 
the visit of their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess 
of York, forming a guard of honor in part of the University 
when the Prince and Princess visited it. 

The original Company officers were Capt. Lang. Lieuts. 
T. M Burnside and A. C. MeDougal, both well-known 
University graduates. Wilkie Evans (S.P.S.) was the first 
Company Sergt.-Major and .Mr. Williams, of the gymnasium 
staff, was the Quartermaster Sergeant. 

In 1903 the headquarters of the corps were removed to 
the Armouries and by command of the Militia Department 
a city section was raised and the establishment increased to 
181 of all ranks and 53 horses. H. X. G-zowski was now 
Company Sergt.-Major and the corps had lost Lieuts. Burn- 
side and MeDougal the former serving the Empire in the 
Wesl African Frontier Forces and the latter having taken 
a position with the Westinghouse Co. in the United States. 
Each year the Company has gone to the divisional camp 
at Niagara-on-the Lake, under General Otter, where, in 
addition to going through a course of instruction in Military 

Engil ring, it has done its share of the regular duties 

pertaining to its branch of the service, such as water supply, 
running telephones, and. in 1905, the whole telegraphic 
arrangemenl of the camp was given in its charge. On 

C. S. M. Gzowski's promotion to commissioned raids. Sergt. 
J. J. O 'Sullivan succeeded him and did yeoman service in 
raising the Company's strength and efficiency. 

Each Thanksgiving Day the corps has been employed 
in its technical duties. In 1906 a remarkably tine pontoon 
bridge was thrown over Credit River under adverse con- 
ditions of approach and banks, which Capt. Russell Drown. 
R.E., who was umpiring, praised very highly. The Thanks- 
giving manoeuvers of 1907 were a dry outing, no river 
interfering with the passage of troops engaged. This year, 
owing to the Quebec Centennial celebration, no field day 
was held. 

The Engineers have also taken a prominent part in the 
Annual Tournament in the Armouries. Last year a barrel 
pier bridge was constructed in the arena in the remarkably 
short time of less than ten minutes from the start till the 
first troops began crossing it. 

The main training of the Company is done in camp at 
Niagara; those who cannot attend this agreeable outing are 
trained evenings and Saturdays in the fall in knotting, 
lashing, the use of spars for temporary bridges, pontooning 
on the lake, demolitions with percussion and electric fuses 
and guneotton, use of field level, derricks, gyms, sheers 
or the drill of a mobile company of Engineers. There is 
a keen competition between the different sections of the 
Company in drilling, as there are prizes offered for the 
most efficient section in which not only drill but attendance, 
smartness, etc.. counts for much. 

A bugle band is one of the latest additions also. The 
members of the Company have shooting privileges at Long 
Branch ranges all season. 

At the close of the present drill season, as an evidence 
of the good-will exist in»' between the officers and men. the 
officers tendered the non-eoiiniiissioned officers and men a 
banquet, at which a most enjoyable evening was spent. 

The present officers of the Company are: .Major W. R. 
Lang, Capt. S. 1'. Biggs, Lieuts. II. N. Gzowski. II. F. II. 
Hertzberg, T. II. [rving, and Dr. Barton, as Medical 
Officer. The University non-coms, are: Sergts. Robertson.

"Fortune Imtli her throne upon a rock, 

But brave nun fear not lii climb." 

Alfred Harold Eugene Kert'er, better known as " Harry,'' re- 
ceived his High School education at Richmond Hill, prior to which 
he was born at Maple. He entered Trinity in '02, won the Dixon 
Scholarship in Science and held it throughout his course. How- 
ever, feeling the inadequacy of the Arts degree, his natural good 
judgment prevailed and he entered the "Temple of Meekness and 
Peacefulness " with 'lis. After the completion of his second year 
he decided to devote a year to the application of the theory already 
absorbed, returning to join the cohorts of '09. In Association foot- 
ball circles Harry's is a well-known name. He played on the 
intermediate team which won the championship in '06 and this 
year is a member of the senior team. 



He was bom in 1886, in the county of York. After receiving 
his preliminary education at a rural school he attended Newmarket 
Collegiate, matriculating in 1904. Ft seems, however, that Xew 
Ontario had a fascination for our friend \ur, and ''he took to the 
bush " for a couple of years. While there In- acquired a taste for 
Engineering and accordingly he joined the class of '09. Energy and 
capability, coupled with a cheerful and obliging disposition assure 
that hi' will "make good" in his chosen profession of Civil 



"Wlm mixed reason with pleasure and wisdom with mirth.'' 
Roy was born in the village of Minniehill in 1884. His High 
School education he received at Meaford, graduating in 1902 with the 
First Prize in General Proficiency and the A. G. MacKay Gold Medal 
in Oratory. After a term in the Model he taught School for three 
years. Coming to the School of Science in the fall of 1906 he spent 
two years with the Miners, but in his third year he made a change 
and will graduate with the Civils. He took an active interest in 
V. M. ( '. A. work, filling the offices of Secretary and Vice-President. 
He represented his year in the Students' Parliament and on the 
Torontonensis Board. Roy has taken honors throughout his course, 
and has ever displayed those qualities which make for success. 


"And mony a eanii/ day, John, in 'n had iri' am anitiier." 
A Bruce boy, and the son of a Presbyterian minister. " Mac " was 
born in (Jnderwood, where he spent twelve years of boyhood. Since 
High School days he has ''fished for himself,'' thus wandering far 
and wide, and turning a hand to many things. Realizing what a 
good ''bunch'' hibernated at the School he forsook the wild northlnnd 
and its railroad life, joined '09 and settled down to study Civil 
Engineering. "Mac'' is an ardent supporter of the "School" in 
general, and '09 in particular, serving on the Executive in his 
sophomore year. Being deeply interested in musical and military 

matters he belongs to the 4Nth Highlanders, and is a member of the 
Mendelssohn Choir.

"I see, but cannot reach, the height 
That lies forever in the light." 

Although the earliest years of "Mae's" life were spent in 
Montreal, yet he received his early education in Guelph. From the 
Collegiate there he graduated with his Senior Matriculation in 1905. 
A year later he registered in the Civil Engineering course at the 
School of Science. He has shown himself a good student throughout 
and taken a high class standing each year. Many friends wish him 
and all '09 the best of success, both now and in the future. 



"His heart is true as steel." 

It was in the autumn of 1906 that "Mac" commenced an active 
life of strenuous ease, by entering the class of '09. Since that time, 
in his spare moments during the few days before the examinations, 
he has found time to convince the examiners to allow his name to be 
entered on the list of successful candidates. He has diversified his 
academic career by many extra-mural enjoyments, and has succeeded 
in uniting pleasure and work in about desirable proportions, and 
wherever in pursuance of his profession he may be led upon him will 
be found the truest stamp of Varsity's son — a man among men. 




we arc, ice arc the Engineers." 

Although born in Quebec, June, 1888, most of his life has been 
spent in Toronto. His preparatory work was acquired at the Model 
School, Toronto, and Upper Canada College, where he also learned the 
game of Rugby. Civil Engineering is the illustrious course he has 
chosen for academic work. In University life he is a member of the 
"Bock Club," and last year captained the Champion Mulock Cup 
Team, Intermediate School, also playing a few games with Varsity 
Seconds. This year he is the School Representative on the University 
Rugby Club Executive. Alex, has been spending his summers 
acquiring practical experience in the northern parts of Ontario and 



"I would express him simple, (/rait, sincere." 
"Fred" claims Woodstock, Ontario, as his birthplace. Here, too. 
he attended public schools and Woodstock College, where some prizes 
came his way, both as student and athlete. After matriculation he 
tried business life for a year, then returned to Woodstock for Senior 
Matriculation in Mathematics and Science. Following this, the lure 
of the School drew him to Toronto, and he joined the Civil 
Engineers. ' ' Mac ' ' was a W. F. A. soccer enthusiast, but a broken 
ley in the fall '06, not only put him out of the game, but also gave 
him the privilege of finishing with '09. The C. P. R. and Nipissing 
Mines have claimed his summer activties. We expect to see him 
building railroads sometime. 



McMillan, victor. 

"Wondrous for his size, 
Is the kill we idolise." 
Victor McMillan, alias "Little Mac," appeared first upon this 
terrestrial sphere at Lorneville, and prepared himself for the study of 
the higher Sciences and Mathematics at Port Hope. He matriculated 
in 1905, and the howling winds of the autumn 1906 blew him up to 
Toronto, where during the last three years he has won his way 
into the hearts of all his fellow-students. His common sense and good 
judgment have enabled him to cinch his exams, with the smallest 
quantity of work possible. To such a degree did we trust his 
judgment that whenever he pronounced the verdict "smooth" on an 
actress we never failed to see her. May his golden qualities lead 
him to the zenith of success. 



"A gentleman, in word <<»</ deed." 
Alexander Brock Manson was bom at Stratford, Ontario, on 
December Kith, L884. He passed his early school days in this same 
hamlet, and graduated in 1903. Three years' experience as a peda- 
gogue led him to seek other pursuits. Possibilities seemed great in 
Engineering, so he enrolled with 'Oil, for a course in Mechanical 
Engineering at S. I'. S., passing his first year with Honors. He, 
however, ehanged over to Civil in L907, where he struck his right 
medicine, having tilled successfully an important position with the 
Department of Indian Affairs in Manitoba during his summer 
vacation. Having a genial disposition, with brains and executive 
ability, he seems to possess the essentials that augur well for success 
in Engineering. 


" // there is another world, In /nil lin in bliss; 

If not, he trill milli tin hist of this." 

It is now two and twenty years since Ernest S. Martindale took 
his first breath of life-sustaining air at Mt. Healey. on the River 
Grand; wishing to know what these were he entered the Avlmer 
Collegiate in order to obtain the power of assimulating those wonder- 
ful truths, as delivered at the "School" by Dr. Ellis and others. 
Here he began to partake of the cup of knowledge and will, no doubt, 
drain it to the dregs. Escaping from the first and second years with 
Honors, it would be hard to foretell the future. However, "Em" 
cannot but make himself felt in that line of Engineering which he 
has chosen to follow. 



'Neither despised nor sought honors." 

First saw daylight in Mitchell, (Int.. in lss'i A.D. \\r attended 
the public and High Schools there, graduating from the latter in 
1906. He then threw in his lot with the Civils in the last of the 
famous "Xaughties" of the S. 1'. S. Oscar is no doubt one of the 
besl pianists in his year. His attainments on tin' piano display much 
talent, and his singing in one of the best choirs and quartettes in the 
city marks him as a lover of music, and shows a very artistic taste. 
Although this genial youth took no active part in athletics his voice 
was always heard witli the "rooters." 




" With mirth and laughter let old wrinkles come." 

Born in Troy, N.Y., on August 31, 1887. At the age of two he 
moved to Denver, Colorado, and three years later to California, passing 
his boyhood days in the sunny Sierra Madras. Later, at the age of 
nine, he moved to London, Out. After spending three years in the 
public schools there he moved to Chatham, Ont., where he completed 
his High School education, entering the dear old School in 1906. The 
summer of 1907 was spent as a draftsman in the American Locomotive 
Works, Schenectady, N.Y., and that of 1908 on the Engineering force 
of the Northern Construction Co., Lansing, Mich. 


"He is a soldier fit to stand by Caesar and give directions." 

John Newton was born at Limehouse. After his preliminary 
studies at Sarnia Collegiate Institute he entered the School with the 
class of '08, Civil Engineering. ' ' Jack ' ' did not return for his 
second year owing to typhoid fever, but the following year he came 
back and joined '09, with which he hopes to graduate. John has 
always taken a keen interest in sports. In his first year he played on 
the Muloek team and last year and this year he has nobly kept up the 
University traditions on the Varsity football team. John 's splendid 
character fully entitles him to the high esteem in which he is held by 
all his fellow students. 




"A man of well attempted frame." 

Arthur Wilson Pae, thrived and grew husky on the shores of 
Kempenfeldt Bay, from the time of his appearance in Barrie in the 
eighties. Having raised the standard of the Collegiate Institute there 
in athletic, military and academic lines by several degrees he joined 
the Civils in the fall of 1906. The feature of his life has been the 
marked success with which everything he has taken up seriously has 
been attended, and as an Engineer he will most certainly win a name. 
' ' Art ' ' has figured prominently on every available inter-f acuity 
hockey and rugby team since his freshman days, and materially aided 
Senior School in landing the Jennings Cup in '07. 



Everett A. Neville, second son of Colin J. Neville, born at Ruthven, 
Essex county, Ontario, on January 8th, 1887. His primary education 
was obtained in the village public school, and at an early age he 
passed the entrance examination and afterwards entered the Leaming- 
ton High School, from which he graduated in July, 1905. While a 
student at the High School he took an active interest in athletics of 
all kinds. In the fall of 1906 he commenced a course of studies in 
the old School.

"An affable and courteous gentleman." 
' ' Pat, ' ' as he has been dubbed by the boys, first caused happiness 
in Toronto in the early eighties. After securing in the public school 
and Harbord Collegiate what appeared to him more than enough of 
the article called ' ' Education, ' ' he followed the advice of the great 
man who said "Young man, go West." After three years of com- 
mercial activity and a year of wet feet on land survey work, he 
decided in favor of ease and comfort, so entered the School. With the 
knowledge he has gained "Pat" will no doubt be heard of in the

The School then claimed him with his kit, his score of honors and 

his wit ; 
We graduate him to the world, we are assured he's made to fit. 



"For he, by geometric scale, 
Could take the size of pots of ale." 
Was born in Hamilton, 1887; this, however, was not his fault. 
He attended Loyola College in Montreal, and on returning matricu- 
lated from Hamilton Collegiate in 1904. After a year on 
' ' Construction ' ' he entered the class of '08 at its inception, but 
through illness he was unable to take his second year examinations, 
and thus joined the class of '09. While not seeking vain publicity 
he was known to have entered at least one beauty contest — but, enuff 
sed. ' ' Judy 's ' ' aptitude for calculus is well known and is sure to 
land him somewhere. By his example he shows us that there may 
be a short cut to learning. We only hope that his method may prove 
successful, but for more authentic information see Torontonensis, 1910.

James Quail was born at Downpatrick, Ireland, on St. Patrick 's 
I )ay, 1899. Hearing of the sure path to worldly possessions by 
becoming a Civil Engineer, and being of a mercenary turn of mind, 
at the early age of three months, he travelled west to seek his 
fortune. Since then Toronto has been his home. He received his 
early education in Lansdowne Public School and Harbord Street 
Collegiate. Graduating from the latter in 1905 he entered the School 
in the class of '09. His engaging manner and ready wit have gained 
for him many friends. He is a bright student, and on leaving the 
School will have to be a successful Engineer to carry out the 
predictions of his fellow students.

Charles Arthur Scott, familiarly known as "Scottie," was first 
ushered into daylight on April 20th 1886, in Toronto, and almost 
immediately began to make a noise. He is a graduate of Ilarliord 
Collegiate Institute, and one of the stalwarts of "K" Company of 
the Q.O.R. "Scottie" entered the School with '07, bul after Ids

of Toronto, and did not resume his scholastic career until October, 
liiiiT. In his third year he was appointed Senior Representative to Tin 
'Varsity. His many friends have always considered him a man 
of "infinite resource and sagacity. " and when once he is turned

Arthur Sedgwick, who graduates this year from the School of 
Science, is a Windsor hoy by birth. Receiving his preliminary 
education at the Windsor Collegiate Institute, from which he 
graduated with high honors, he subsequently entered the School of 
Science. While there he enjoyed a brilliant career, being the 
recipient of honors eacdi year, and one of the foremost men in intellec- 
tual and scholarly attainments each year of his I'niversity course. 
His brilliant career at College spells for him a most illustrious future 
and one in which the School of Science and Toronto University as a 
whole may look forward to with expectation and delight. 



The subject of this sketch crept into the world away dowD in 
Jamaica, in the town of Savanna-la-Mar, on February 19th, 1886. 
As soon as he was able to stand the sun 's rays he took to learning, 
and received his early training at Manning's School, obtaining Junior 
and Senior Cambridge Certificates. His Engineering proclivities 
brought him to Canada, where he entered the School with the class 
of '09 in Civil Engineering. He soon adapted himself to his entirely 
new environment, and has kept well up with his year, by whom he is 
held in high esteem. He belongs to the Engineers and thoroughly 
enjoys all sides of the University life, and success will surely follow 
him in his chosen profession. 



"I find this the important thing, not so much where we 
stand, but whither ire tire moving.'' 

Was born in Port Elgin, 1885, where he received his primary 
education. Matriculating in 1900 from the Collegiate in that modest 
hamlet Fred entered the School with '06, enrolling in Civil 
Engineering. After his first year he roamed about the north country 
for three years, after which he returned to the School and joined the 
mighty ranks of '09. His geniality and love for sport soon endeared 
him to the hearts of his fellow students, he being an enthusiastic 
association football player, boxer and long distance runner. As a 
student he ranks among the first. His many friends predict for him 
a brilliant future, and all join in wishing him every success. 


"Htii let us rest, 
And let the sound of music sink into our ems." 

"Stunt'' was born in Toronto in 1884 and received his early 
education at Ridley College, capturing the Governor-General's Medal. 
In the fall of 1905 he entered the School in the Department of 
Mechanical Engineering, but later, seeing the error of his ways, 
changed to that of Civil Engineering. Dudley's distinguishing 
characteristic is his versatility. In manner straightforward, he would 
not easily be turned aside from any course he might see fit to adopt. 
Add to that a keen sense of humor and we have a fairly good pen- 
portrait of our subject. We imagine that in emulation of the famous 
John Jones he will make his mark in the world. 



Brother Stewart was bom January 9th, 1885, on Cockburn Island. 
Algoma county, Ontario. Spending three years on the Island, he 

"vamoosed" to Vancouver, B.C., where lie lived for eight years, 
afterwards moving to Nelson. Mr. Stewart attended the Nelson 
public and High Schools, graduating with flying colors, and began 
teaching in 1905. Finding teaching not in his line he entered the 
realms of mining and other industries, in which he had been interested. 
Being successful in his ventures he decided to come to the School of 
Practical Science and enjoy himself for three years, for which he 
has never been sorry, his only regret being that he has to seek his 
fortunes elsewhere and give up the old familiar tune Toike Oike. 



"1 only ask Umi fortuiu stud 
A little more than I can spend." 

Bom in St. Thomas in the early eighties, stuck migrated when a 
year old to the Forest City, where lie attended public school and 
Collegiate Institute. On leaving the latter he decided that the 
business world offered the best laurels. After a tew years he came 
lo himself and found that his education was incomplete, with the 
resuli thai his guardian angel led him to the little red schoolhouse. 
Mire he joined the class of '(IS. The fascination of railroad work 
in Quebec kept him out a year. It is certain that a man of his 
calibre will stand for the best in the profession he is about to enter. 



.1. Cunard Streel first opened his eyes in Ottawa, on February 
1st, L886. Notwithstanding this bad beginning, he obtained the 
Ottawa City Scholarship in 1901, and entered the Collegiate the 

same year. lie then spent two years at Ottawa College, Imt the 

name of the School wafted down his way, and so here he is. The 
summer before coming here he worked on a .lames Bay Railway 
survey; in 1907 on a Trent ('anal survey, and in 1908 was in Prince 
Rupert. Although of a quid and amiable disposition, he has been 
connected with the ma nil fact u re of the most violent explosives, ami

Clyde Clayton Sutherland, liorn in the city of Chippewa falls. 
Wisconsin, crossed in 1898 to Western Canada, locating in Edmonton, 
Alberta. Entering the High School tnere, he obtained, in two years, 
a Standard VII Certificate. During that time he took an active part 
in athletics and in the life of the school generally. In 1906 he 
entered the School as a Civil, and in that year was a member of the 
Intermediate Hockey Team, which won the championship. During his 
course he availed himself fully of the activities of college life and 
became well known among his fellows. His steadiness of character, 
his perseverance, his sound common sense, predict for hint a 
successful career in Engineering.

Hairy \V. Tate was born at Wimbledon, Surrey, England, on the 
14th of October, 1884. He obtained the Junior and Senior Cambridge 
Certificates in L899 and 1900 respectively, thus laying the foundation 
for his successful career at Toronto University. After spending two 
years in Western Canada, on irragation and maintenance of way for 
the Canadian Pacific Railway, he came to Toronto and entered the 
S. I'. S. as one of the boys of '09, with whom, mirabile dictu, he 
finished his academic course. During the three years at the 
University he has been an ardent member of the Rifle Association, 
being S. P. s. Representative for the last two years.

always a good Supporter of sports. Early in life he showed a marked 
disposition to be found very near the top, and on account of his great 
capacity for liar. I work we look upon him to advance the high standard 
already set for his native town by her older sons. If this world is

We bom near Gorrie, Out., Huron county, attending the rural 
school there and afterwards the Harriston High School. It is not 
recorded what inspiration led him to the School, but, however, he 
was found among the class of '08. Through accident, unfortunately, 
he was obliged to be absent for a year and '09 profited thereby. He 
has occupied positions on several survey parties in New Ontario as 
chairman and assistant. His industry, fidelity and ability have won 
him the respect of his employers, as well as of his fellow-students, who 
wish him all success in the profession of civil Engineering. 



"Vim" began his career at the Model School. Toronto. From 
thence he went to Harbor. 1 Collegiate Institute, where he found a 
place among the "favorites'' at School and Inter-t 'ollegiate meets. 
When the time came to matriculate he looked to the School as 
the most suitable field for the exercise and development of his gifts. 
Judging from the following records. John's expectations were 
realized. As a freshman he won a place on the University of Toronto 
Track Team. In ion? he was President of the School Athletic Asso 
ciation, as well as Manager .it' the Intermediate Rugby Team, which 
won the championship in tin 1 Mulock Cup series. In the (iymnasiuni 
Team John classes among the old reliables, lie also held the 200 yard 
swimming championship. 



The subject of this biography made his first appearance to things 
mundane at Freshwater, Newfoundland. For his early education he 
attended Freshwater Public School ; ( 'arbonear Grammar School, and 
Methodist College, St. John's, successively. At Methodist College he 
obtained his Associate of Arts Degree, after which he entered the 
teaching profession, at which work he spent four years. Having a 
desire to continue his studies he entered the University of Toronto in 
1906, joining the class of '09 ; n the Faculty of Applied Science. 



When the world needed another personage to fill a vacancy in the 
field of Applied Science it selected the son of Rev. Jas. Walker, 
Guelph, in the person of Claude M., one whose roving disposition 
and sturdy constitution would fill the requirements of a life among 
Engineers. Having spent his academic days at Chatham and Berlin, 
among books and sports, and having added to this a pedagogical career 
of four years duration in Kent and Bruce counties, Mr. Walker 
betook himself to his desired education at S. P. S., entering with the 
class of '09 in Civil course. While at the School he supplemented the 
theories there propounded by practical work in Northern Ontario and 
the Far West.

of his friends, Faculty or Alma Mater, he was always willing to do 
with his purse. His personality and ability to rule over men won for 
him the position of "Captain" of his field party when but a 
freshman, and later he held an office on the University Track Team. 
He is the embodiment of self-confidence and self-reliance along with 
the other essential ingredients that make up great men. 



"Man's inhumanity to man 
Malts countless thousands mourn." 

Robert Greenlees Wilkinson partook of his first bowl of Scotch 
porridge and also his first bowl of Scotch whiskey in Aberarder, the 
home of Highland elans. He said good morning to public school in 
perfect Gaelic and good-bye in excellent English. While attending 
High School at Forest he was polite in English and profane in his 
mother tongue, which he found of great service in the more heated 
periods of life. He spent three years in vaccinating the youth with 
knowledge and conducting crusades against religious revivals. After 
the strain of his first year at School he went on a fly chase through 
Northern Ontario and caught most of the flies. 




"Workie" first cried for milk in the city of Rochester, X.V.. on 
the morning of February 6, 1884. He attended many schools and at 
last matriculated from Waterdown High School. On arriving at 
Varsity he early distinguished himself on the track and in the 
gymnasium. His executive powers, keen interest and straightforward- 
ness in athletics were soon appreciated. Of the U. of T. Track Team 
he was member in '05, '06 and '07; Vice-President in '07. and 
Manager in 'OS. He was also member of the Gymnasium Team in 
'06, '07, and '08, being Secretary- Treasurer for '07. In his own 
Faculty he became Vice-President of the Athletic Association in 
'06, and Secretary Treasurer of his year in '08. Through his 
untiring efforts the Track Team has again brought the trophy to

Eark! Eark! How the dogs do bark. 
The students have come to town; 
Looking for bunks and storage for trunks, 
And a place to hang up a gown. 

IT lias been said that history repeats itself, but the history 
of the class of '10 is unique in itself. Early in October. 
1907, there was great reason for a barking and commotion, 
for the most promising looking lot of embryo engineers 
ever seen had come to town. In our first year- we numbered 
three hundred and seventeen, but the usual thirty-three 
per cent, were kindly reserved by the examiners for the 
succeeding freshmen, in order to hand down to them the 
traditions of meekness and peacefulness which they learned 
l'l-oin us. 

We were not always as meek and peaceful as we looked, 
for it is on record that when we were considered as " poor 
I'l-eshies" by a certain year, the last of the Naughties, who 
occupied then the position that we have at present climbed 
in the sophomores undertook to gel our scalps, first 
calling lo their aid the senior year. But, alas, they found 
we were like the cigar, t hey cnuldn'1 tell what was beneath 
the wrapper until smoked. Unfortunately for them, the 
cigar was too strong; and ii is said thai their faces after- 
wards presented anything but thai of a graded tint. 


This early recognition of our artistic abilities, along 
with various other qualifications, goes to show that both 
as freshmen and later as sophomores we possess many valu- 
able accomplishments. In oratory, for instance, at the 
Annual School Dinner, our President made the speech of 
the evening — the shortest on record. 

It was '10 who rushed in and captured the Jennings 
Hockey Cup, and we got into the finals for the Mulock Cup 
also. And now. at the close of the football season, we might 
add that four of our men \xv\-v on the Varsity I. Rugby 
Team, this being the best representation of any class in 
the University. We could go on and enumerate without end 
these little facts, which all signify that in 'Id the School 
has one of the most brilliant classes ever known: a class 
both loyal to their "Alma .Mater" and true to themselves. 
We have set the pace so Ear for all previous years in getting 
over work ami maintaining a high standard. If things 
continue to move on with the enthusiasm which only the 
men of '1(1 know how to stir up it is certain that our next 
and last and best historical record will contain evidence 
thai our present number of two hundred and thirty-five 
have all passed into the third degree with a large "factor 
of safetv."

■•//( forgot himself where he could h< of use to others." 

The stork celebrated Victoria Day, 1887, by leaving Ernie in the 
picturesque little town of Orillia. Since then he has proven himself 
to be a loyal subject of the Empire. He received his early education 
in Mount Slaven Public School, and later in the Orillia Collegiate, 
obtaining Junior Matriculation in '02. Following this he served an 
apprenticeship in the machine shops of the E. Long Mfg. Co., Ltd. 
This led to his registration with the class of Naughty-Nine in the 
Mechanical and Electrical course. He is a diligent and industrious 
student, as shown by his class standing in both his years, while his 
modest and gentlemanly demeanor has won him many friends, who 
join in good wishes for his future success. 



Henry Vernon Hell Armstrong first saw the light November 14th, 
1885, in Orillia. His people soon left this town and took up their 
abode in Trenton. The basis of his education was formed in the 
Trenton public and High Schools. Not seeing his way clear to fol- 
low ,l in the footsteps of his father," Vernon came to the School of 
Science to study Electrical Engineering. Vernon has always taken 

:in active pari in sports, especially hockey. He was ;i member of the 
championship 'Varsity Thirds. 1903, and of the School Interfaculty 
team of the same year.

Edgar broke the silence several years ago near Whitby, and has 
been making a noise ever since. He early evinced a desire to be a 
mining engineer, and after a brilliant course at Whitby Collegiate, he 
entered the abode of the peaceful. While there he has taken interest 
in all that is going on, as well as playing football. When the lists of 
the annual April receptions come out Edgar's name is always found 
followed by an H. His early success points to a brilliant future, for 
which all his friends wish. 



"Hix virtues walked their narrow round. 
Nor made a 'pause, nor left a void." 

Hill apparently thought that for an engineer it would be well 
to start right, so he began at Niagara Falls, on August 3, 1886. He 
obtained his primary and collegiate education at that place, and 
entered Applied Science with the '(>!» class in Mechanical and Elec- 
trical Engineering. His diligent work and pleasing manner earned 
for him an enviable place among his fellow-students. He obtained 
some valuable and varied experience, spending his first summer's 
holidays in the wilds of Northern Ontario, and his second with Hanev 
& Miller on the Toronto waterworks improvement. For Hill we 
predict a happy and prosperous career in Mechanical Engineering.

''Tin- heights of great men readied and kept 
Wire not attained by midden flight; 

But they, while their companions slept, 
Here toiling upward in the night." 
At Linden Valley, on the first day of February, 1887, E. E. 
Birchard made his debut into this world. Having left behind child- 
hood days, short trousers and the ' ' little red sehoolhouse, ' ' he entered 
the Lindsay Collegiate Institute, from which he matriculated in 1905, 
and shortly afterwards entered the now famous class of Naughty-Nine. 
From his earliest boyhood days Russel exhibited a mechanical tend- 
ency, evidenced by the many useful and wholly original devices con- 
structed by the young inventor around the house. His many friends 
wish him every success in his chosen profession, and may he ever 
remain a good all round man. 



"Take him and use liim well; he's worthy of it." 
Was born in Toronto, but received his public and High School 
education in the town of Colborne. Out. On his return to Toronto he 
spent some years in the employ of the Fensom Elevator Works, 
where he held a responsible position, until he entered the Technical 
High School in L905. In 1906 he matriculated and entered the 
School of Science, where, through a successful course, he has been 
a general favorite, taking a keen interest in all matters concerning 
tne "School," and particularly his year, of which he was Vice- 
President in 1907. A thorough man, a prince of good fellows, his 
friends wish him all success in his chosen field of Mechanical Engi- 




"Whence is thy learning? Hath tin/ toil 
O'er books consumed tin midnight ml.'' 
John was born in Toronto in 1885. His childhood days in the 
Model School were spent in growing up and learning things. From 
here he drifted into the busy marts of trade, and learned the lessons 
of that sterner senool — experience. Maturer thought then directed 
John to private study, which led to his matriculation and subsequent 
enrolment with the class of '09 as it swarmed into the "little veil 
sehoolhouse. ' ' John here pursued his studies with such zeal and 
energy that his course points to that goal of all earnest endeavor — 
success. Our best wishes go with him — best liked by those who know 
him best. 



"He teas not born for show or bit/ affairs. 
He does his best, smiles, and says his prayers." 
Elbert's career has naturally been a very hot one, for near the 
historic village of Stoney Creek he was picked up in a rhubarb patch 
exposed to the scorching rays of a July sun — he hasn 't cooled off 
since. Two years in noisy machinery developed in him a remarkable 
hive for mechanics, which led to his matriculating from Hamilton 
Collegiate Institute and entering our college walls with the glorious 
year '09. His cheerful face, humorous replies and tangled curls 
make him one of the boys, while his self respect, high ideals and 
sympathetic nature warrant him the success he deserves. Curly, as 
he is generally called, was always on the job for the yellow, blue and 
white, and has the rare distinction of an honor standing, and leaves 
our ink-stained halls with the respect and best wishes of us all. 


"The open-handed spirit, frank and blithe." 

On Friday, May 21st, 188(5, in London, Canada, "Cy." was first 
brought to the light of day. The pretty little Forest City was des- 
tined to bo his home for a number of years and gave him his public 
school education. From 1899, however, he has resided in Toronto. 
After wandering around a few years he enrolled in the Jarvis Street 
Collegiate Institute and matriculated into the S.P.S. in 1906. Since 

then he has 1 □ steadily advancing with the class of '09, and on 

completion of his course ought to make an efficient mechanical and 
electrical graduate of the "School." 



"The world knows nothing of its greatest men." 

This rare specimen was discovered in Toronto on September 24th, 
isx. - ), and for a long time existed merely as a shapeless mass, finally 
assuming a definite form, something between a prism and a cone. 
His friends think he has a great future before him as an Engineer, 
his enemies agree that he gives great promise but in other directions, 
lie is noted fur his many attractive qualities, his good nature, his 
literary attainments and his eloquence — the last would bring tears to 
the eves of a potato and would charm even a Third Fear Med. lie 
contains all the qualities necessary to constitute a successful Mining 
Engineer, and confidently expects to be one. 


"There's in him more than thou under standest." 

Comes from Pembroke, where he received his primary and H. S. 
education. He matriculated with honors and entered the School of 
Science in 1905. He had always shown a liking for mechanics and 
therefore registered in Mechanical Engineering. After two years 
Walter spent a year in the shops and returned in 1908 with renewed 
enthusiasm for work and play. He was one of the fortunate number 
in the new residence and made many friends among the boys. Faith- 
ful and clever in his work and loyal in friendship, Walter has won 
the esteem of those who know him and they predict success for him 
in his chosen sphere. 



"And mart ami more, and still Hit tromltr grew 
Hun- nut small head could carry all In knew." 

Mr. Huthie was born in L889 anil has lived in Toronto all his life. 
He graduated from the I'arkdale Collegiate Institute in 190.". and his 
past three years' work at the School are making of him a capable 
and efficient Mining Engineer. He is one of the youngest of the most 
popular fellows of the famous 'Hi) Miners and promises to turn out a 
practical geologist and miner of no mean ability. Although he lias 
so far done nothing very striking he is one of those fortunate individ- 
uals who seem to have no difficulty in passing their exams, and that 
without special effort. 




"The deepest rivers flow with least sound." 

Born in Fergus, Ont. ; lived in Toronto since 1900 ; spent five years 
in the public school and later at St. Andrew's College, taking an 
active interest in sports; matriculated in 1905, and entered the Faculty 
of Applied Science; member of Third Rugby Team 1907 and Class 
Team of 1907; fraternity, Kappa Alpha Society. 



Val F. Gourlay, Gait, Ont., Mechanical and Electrical Engineer. 



"God made him, and therefore — . " 

The victim of this portrait appeared suddenly some twenty odd 
years ago in the town of Tweed. A course in the public school was 
followed by matriculation from Albert College, Belleville, in 1903. 
Some time was then spent in Electrical work with Quebec Jacques 
Cartier Electric Co. and Canadian Copper Co. at Turbine. At length, 
longing for other worlds to conquer, he sought the silence of the 
School, where he found a hearty welcome. Both vacations were em- 
ployed profitably: one at Turbine and the other in charge of the 
electrical plant of Graves, Bigwood & Co., at Byng Inlet. "Buss" 
has had well-deserved success and his many friends — of both sexes — 
rejoice in his bright outlook. 


"I am he that is so love shaked, I pray you tell me 
your remedy." 

Russel R. Grant is a native of Strathroy, Ont. Since the happy 
event of his birth Mr. Grant has enlarged rapidly and now stands 
six-foot-two in his sox ; he claims that with this elevation he caD 
assume a much more commanding attitude towards the world in 
general than his lesser brethren, but being a Mining Engineer he is 
rather difficult to believe, like others of the same profession. Mr. 
Grant has already had quite a varied experience in Engineering, es- 
pecially at the Craigmont Corundum Mines, and in Cobalt ; he also 
spent a year with the Canadian Northern Railway out in Western

" I'o/i. Cassias has a lean and hungry look; 
He thinks too much; such nun arc dangerous." 
Charles Holmes, born in the city of Chatham, Ont., passed his 
juvenile days amid the peaceful surroundings of the self same city. 
The vices of his budding youth were greatly atoned for by his many 
virtues. By devoting to scholastic pursuits the least possible time 
and work he obtained his honor matriculation and changed his seat of 
learning from the quaint city of his birth to the Queen City of 
Toronto. Entering on a course of Electrical Engineering he has 
since endeavored to gain such a fund of knowledge as will harvest a 
glorious abundance of the necessary requirements for a life of much 
joy and prosperity. 



"He hath a lean and hungry look. 

And yet withal an 'angel face.' 

Sed ne fronti crede. 
Chester first made a disturbance in this world on March 30th, 
1888, and true to his birth month has been making disturbances ever 
since. The date being a Good Friday probably accounts for his 
angel smile. In due time he matriculated from Parkdale Collegiate 
Institute and thence came to the University in time to join the class 
of '09 in Applied Science. He is an all-round good fellow, well liked 
by Professors and fellow-students, ready for fun and also capable of 
good work as the class list will show. Having shown marked ability 
in Mechanics his profession is well chosen, and that ' ' Whose ' ' may 
make a grand success is the wish of all. 


"0, sure I am, the wits of former days, 
To subjects worse have given admiring praise." 

Born July 10th, 1886, in Toronto, he has never strayed therefrom. 
The power of a school mistress was first impressed upon him in Jesse 
Ketchum Public School, in which institution he spent many pleasant 
and profitable years. For four years he engaged with Fensom Ele- 
vator Company, deriving therefrom much practical knowledge. 
Matriculating from the Technical High School, he discerned the scope 
and possibilities in the Engineering field, and from the vantage 
ground of the Technical School, S.P.S. looked good to him. 



"Great is thy power, great thy fame. 
For kenned and noted is thy name. ' ' 

The news of Bruce was first conveyed to Toronto in the year 1889. 
He received his early education at Harbord Collegiate Institute and 
matriculated from there in 1906. From here Bruce set out to master 
the difficulties of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering at the 
Faculty of Applied Science, and has done so, being always with the 
honor men in his year. He has always been interested in the camera, 
and during his course has held the offices of Second Year Representa- 
tive and Vice-President of the School Camera Club. Although at 
present undecided as to his course after graduation, we predict for 
him a successful career in whatever branch he may choose.

On March 19th, L884, the subject of this sketch first opened his 
eyes, and one family in the town of Shelburne, Ont., was made 
happier. Five years later the family moved to Orillia. Here Albert 
began his school career in the West Ward Public School. In 1899 
he entered the Collegiate Institute from which he graduated three 
years later. The next four years were spent in teaching at Severn 
Bridge and Oro Station, where he gained considerable experience in 
pedagogy. Hut he was not satisfied, and having a liking for the 
wonders of electricity he enrolled in the Faculty of Applied Science 
with the class of '09. Here he has made a good record and we pre- 
dict for him a brilliant career in the line he has chosen.

"Small of stature, but gnat of mind." 

While the December storms were preparing the Christmas of 1889 
and Old Santa was packing his sleds for his annual trip, the busy 
stork chose to leave a Christmas box in that cozy log hut sheltered by 
the faithful poplar near the busy town of Seaforth, and Billy Mc. 
was it. After matriculating from Seaforth Collegiate Institute he 
wandered to the Halls of Science and October 1st, 1903, saw him en- 
rolled in the class divine of '09. He chose Mechanical Engineering 
as his life's profession. His pleasant temperament has made him 
a credit to the school, a favorite with the boys, and a strong charac- 
ter for the life before him. Mc. leaves our midst, taking with him 
the heartiest wishes of us all. 


When about eieht years old Bert, with his parents, came to 
Canada from England. His early instruction was given him in the 
public schools of Orillia and he finally ended his studies in that 
town by gaining his Senior Leaving Certificate at the Collegiate In 
stitute, winning two scholarships in so doing, one of wheh was the 

Prince of Wales Scholarship in Mathematics and Science. After this 
he spent some six years in teaching "the young ideas how to shoot. " 
Since that time Bert lias spent his time very profitably in the 

Faculty of Applied Sciei obtaining his year's standing with 

honors. We predict for hint a brilliant future, judging by his past 
attainments, and we join with all his friends in wishing him a pins 

perous career. 



" "Fis said that In plunged madly into life, ridiculous." 

George McLeod performed his youthful exploits near the village 
of Armow, Bruce county. After attending the Kincardine High 
School he became a Knight of the Order of the Birch Rod. Choos- 
ing Engineering as a profession we find him enrolled in class "US. 
In School he has shown industry and ability, taking honors both 
years. Peeling the call of the West he spent a year visiting the 
Western prairies. The clnss of '09 welcomes him to their ranks and 
we feel sure that the qualities that have won him friends and success 
will brinjj him honor and achievement in the future.

'Varsity Students on the Rampage" — Globe 



"Long live Nervton, our brave Oshawa Minstrel." 

Oshawa, that little burg of "Way Down East," boasts the fair 
distinction of being the birthplaee of Newton Manning. There, from 
]sss to 1906, he waxed strong and flourished, eventually graduating 
from the O. H. S. with a Junior Leaving and honors in Senior Mathe- 
matics, and now for three years has been an honored pillar of the 
invincible '09. A born versitality of genius is evidenced both by his 
devotion to scientific pursuits and the surpassing musical attainments 
with which he is wont to beguile many an otherwise weary hour for 
himself and friends. A thoroughly good fellow, his many friends — 
gained al home, here among his fellow-students, or more often, per- 
chance, in Ins motor boat, dancing over the clear waters of Lake 
Ontario- -unitedly extend to him their best wishes of "good fortune." 



"I would he were fatter — tho' I fair him not." 

The long, lanky form of Charlie Morris is a well-known figure on 
the 'Varsity campus and his bhree years al the School have won him 
a host of friends. Ee is an old Upper Canada hoy and the training 
he is undergoing is rapidly fitting him to be a capable and efficient 
Mining Engineer. He has had already some experience in the iron 
mini's of Newfoundland, confining his attention so far to the practical 

side lit' mining. Although not a genius, he has always 1 n able, by 

means of hard plugging at the lust moment, to get through his exams., 

though nut without line or two of the stellar bodies hovering near. 


"Life piled on life were all too little." 

Leslie S. Odell was born in Middlesex County, Out., April 13th, 
1889. From that time forward he began to develop a brilliant mind, 
for at the age of sixteen he obtained his Senior Leaving at London 
Collegiate. After a year's experience with the London Street Kail- 
way Co. he cast in his lot with the invincible '09. As well as being a 
leader of his year at examinations, he was among the foremost whim 
the trumpet sounded for a "freshie hustle.'' To gain experience in 
marine turbine work he accepted and held the position of engineer on 
the S.S. Turbinia during the summer of 1907. His kind disposition 
and unfailing generosity have won for him the best wishes of his 
fellow-students for success. 



" 'Tis mi old tale, and often told." 

Gerald Mungo Ponton was born near Belleville in 1888. His pre- 
liminary education was obtained at the Belleville High School, from 
whence he gained the class of 'OS in Mining Engineering. In the 
summer of L907, while prospecting in New Ontario, typhoid fever 
attacked him, preventing him continuing his course till the following 
year, changing his allegiance to '09. Always a good worker, (Jerry's 
success is assured, and he will always carry with him the best wishes 
of a host of friends. 



"His heart was warm, benevolent and good, 
Yet, tho ' his caustic wit ivas citing rude. ' ' 
The small town of Teeswater was for a part of 1890 deprived of 
its equilibrium by the appearance of Morley in the form of a very 
small boy. He matriculated from Simooe High School in 1905 and 
the following term entered Toronto University with its star class 
of '09. having in his mind the resolve to become an Electrical 
engineer. He is a lance corporal in the mounted section of the 
University section of 2nd Feld Company of Canadian Engineers, and 
has taken part in sham battles and tournaments. Morley will long 
be remembered by his fellow-students as a genial, hearty fellow, not 
afraid to lend a helping hand when needed. 


The subject of this sketch first took notice of things in 1888 in 
that metropolis under the mountain — Hamilton. Here he acquired 
his primary education and set out for Toronto in 1899. We next see 
him setting the pace in matters scientific at Jarvis Street Collegiate. 
With talents along these lines it was inevitable that he should next be 
found in the brilliant coterie of '09, S.P.S., his inventive genius not 
abated but now working with the solid basis of the Calculus and 
Ohm's Law. His efforts are always altruistic, being often applied to 
the problems involved in the ' ' uplift ' ' of humanity. Such genius is 
always interesting and when coupled with Gordon 's frankness and 
geniality, the combination is inimitable. 


"Describe him who can, 
An abridgement of all that is pleasant in man." 
Aleck George Trees was born in Toronto on October 29th, 1889. 
After receiving his preliminary education from Upper Canada College 
and passing his matriculation, he decided to try his hand at Engineer- 
ing. Entering the Faculty of Applied Science in the M. & E. E. 
course with the year of '09, he obtained high standing in the class, 
taking honors in his second year. In his third year he decided for 
Mechanical Engineering. During his college course he was actively 
associated with the 2nd Field Company of Engineers. In his grad- 
uating year he was elected to the office of Secretary-Treasurer of the 
S.P.S. Camera Club. 



In the hamlet of Harriston, in the county of Wellington, Frank 
first saw the light of day. It was there he received his early aca- 
demic training. It was there, in his Scottish environment, he acquired 
that quiet, pensive disposition which marks him as a nut to be 
cracked before the kernel is reached. In college he has proven 
himself to be a practical student, true to his own fixed principles, 
and such that the world must some day accept him as her own first 
best choice. 




"None but himself con be Ms parallel." 

If is voice first demanded attention at the home of a happy couple 
at Brampton, Ont. Here for two decades he lived with nature. At 
length, being persuaded that greater things were in store for him, he 
matriculated from the B. H. S., studied then' another year, and with 
the '09 class, joined the meek and peaceful S.P.S. Examination 
honors were naturally his, but not until the close of his second year 
did the searchlight of the student-gaze discover those ran' capabili- 
ties concealed beneath his natural reserve. Immediately he was made 
Vice-President of the Engineering Society and Bible-study Chairman 
of tin' Y.M.C.A. Concerning the future we do not predict, for how- 
ever extravagant, we could not but underestimate. 



"1 a in a fellow af 1!k strangest mind in tin world, 1

Sometime within the last twenty-five years — I am not exactly sure 
when — Stanley A. Wookey was ushered into this world. This historic 
event occurred in the Island of Jamaica. West Indies. Since then 
Mr. Wookey has had many uj>s and downs. These occurred chiefly on 
tin' passage to Canada from liis old home, and ever' he has never 
been known to throw- his bread upon the waters. In the fall of 1906 
Stanley came to the School of Practical Science and has now high 
hopes of becoming famous as a Mining Engineer. We all wish him 







"No floivers — by request." 

Beith, Robert E., was born January 10th, 1887, in the town of 
Whitby, Ontario. During his early years he moved to Toronto, 
where be completed his High School education at Jameson Avenue 
Collegiate. He entered the course of Electrical Engineering at the 

Scl 1 of Practical Science with the class of '08. At the end of 

his second year he took a position with the Canadian Niagara 
Power Company, returning, to finish his third year, in 1909.

"// I've been merry, what matter, who knows?" 

George was born in Seeley's Bay in 1883. He moved to Gananoque 
for his early education. Later Toronto became the family home. 
Here his preparatory Engineering course was some drug store training 
where he learned that jollying is the article dispensable for ladies. 
In holidays his practical work consists of experimenting on gasoline 
launches and teaching girls the value of electrical engineering by 
talks on the use of the dynamo as a sparker. College work takes but 
little of his time; the rest, which he steals from his friends, he gives 
to music. He manages, by what means I know not, to get through 
without a star, and leaves the honors for those who sacrifice the lust 
part of college life. 



"Hi's of Irish extraction, of that ancient noisy fact inn 
That hut It kept the earth awhdrl, 
And nun sir him reaching high, with a searching eaglt eyt 

For the rosy Shamrock girl." 
Bom in Meaford, Out., where he received his preliminary educa- 
tion in the Public and High Schools. After passing his Junior 
Leaving and Matric. exams., he was engaged at work on the farm 
and in the factory for two years. He entered the S. I". S. in 1905 

on a course of Electrical Engineering. At the end oJ his second 
year, after two months with the Canadian Westinghouse Co., he 
engaged with the C. X. I'. Co., at Niagara Palls, for fourteen months, 
ami returned to Toronto in September of the present year to com- 
plete his course (in Applied Science). 



"His honest, cheerful, modest face 
Aye won him friends in every place. ' ' 
Robert A. Campbell selected the little hamlet of Elmgrove as 
being best fitted for his appearance on this planet. After matricu- 
lating from the Alliston Collegiate, he taught school for a few years. 
Then, becoming inspired with a love for Engineering, he enrolled 
himself with '09. Bob easily took honors in '07 and '08, and, along 
with his knack of always being on the spot when anything was doing, 
he has done his share of keeping up the School 's reputation. His 
genial disposition has won him many friends, who wish him the suc- 
cess which surely awaits him. 



"He singeth loud his godly hymns. 
He hcareth at the 'show.' " 
Harold rode down from St. Andrew's, and by means of his 
celestial whistle made life 's tether easy during the strenuous fresh- 
man year. Drafting seemed his calling, but class lists and lab. 
reports have shown what he really can do. Every student in Science 
— Applied or Household — has known him. His sturdy voice has 
always valiantly defended the " Chee hee " of '09, and " Meds. " 
have often felt their timbers shaken by his loyal greetings. He has 
devoted his spare moments to electrical themes, his otherwise undi- 
vided attention having been cheerfully given to assisting his col- 
leagues around all sorts of knotty problems, varying from "Merri- 
man " to " Policeman. ' ' His merited reward : Best wishes for 


"No wher so besy a wan as he ther n'as, 
And yet he seemed besier than he was." 
Harold hails from the Golden West, being born some twenty 
years since in Port Simpson, B.C. In 1906 Hal. sniffed the incense 
lrom the lamp of knowledge and straightway arming himself with 
a matriculation passport from Columbian College, New Westminster, 
he followed the trail to S. P. S., signing up with '09. He has since 
played "shortstop" for everything that comes from the professional 
bat. Hal. is easily among the best men in his year. His quiet good- 
nature and ready "explanations" have won for him the high honor 
of President of the graduating year. 



"I am become a name 

For always roaming with a hungry heart." 
Among the many scientific minds which London, Out., has pro- 
duced none have come more into prominence than that of Roy Cun- 
ningham since the year 1888. Having matriculated at the L. C. I. 
in 1903, he continued his studies there for another year, taking up 
the Senior Mathematics and Science and obtaining special distinction 
in Chemistry by original investigation regarding the properties of 
many different compounds, mostly explosive. For three years now 
his distinctive personality has constituted an essential element in 
rare old, fair old '09. With a vast store of originality, and wide 
experience, both in telephone work and in the management of the 
cycle and automobile business, his many friends cannot but feel 
assured of his ultimate good fortune.

of ,ii n III mil ii. " 

The village of King saw in the year L887 the birth of II. W. 
I)avis, and tin' same locality gave him his public school education. 
Aurora ami New market were the scenes of bis preparation fur a 
University, ami from tin- latter he obtained his matriculation. Dur- 
ing the next year hi' was with the G. T. P. engineers engaged in 
terminal work at Port William. But now to attend to his profes- 
sional training he entered the 'oil elnss in Electrical Engineering at 
'Toronto University, ami during his attendance his name has always 

beei upled with faithful work. Those who know him believe that 

he will fulfil the high expectations they have for him. 




Tin- subject of this sketch first troubled humanity in 'so. 

seen,' being in Ottawa. In that hon f Senators and others, he 

obtained Ids education, principally at Ottawa College, from which 
he took his degree of B.A., a title he wears as gently as if he had 
forgotten it. He may have learned some piety at college (?), but 
possibly some outsider told him "a good cigar's a smoke.'' and out- 
lined thai happy road along which his own temperament tends him 

strongly enough. He made a g 1 contact when he chose Electrical 

Engineering, and though short-circuited in first year Chem., has man 
aged to maintain rated speed ever since. He dabbles enough in poli- 
tics to land a Government job every summer. 


To the town of Manitou, Manitoba, 1 clones the honor of being 
the whereabouts of the birth and boyhood of this brawny product 
of the West. In ls<ii», at the impressionable a«r of eleven, the possi 
bilities in the name of Belleville proved too much for his sucepti- 
bilities in the matter of temininty. and he pulled his freight for the 
East. For six years the High School of that town formed the stage 
setting for his triumphs — academic and otherwise. A prophetic 
vision of the glories of Naughty-Nine then induced him to seek mem- 
bership therein, and he became "one of ours." A sane combination 
of mental and physical development has fitted him tor one of the 
responsible positions that await the man who ''makes good."

under Hamilton Hill. Making use of the passport here given him. 
he finally decided to forget it all in the corridors of the S. P. S. 
During his sojourn he has incidentally picked up small scraps of 
Engineering knowledge, which when moulded together will astonish 
the world and faculty alike. Tracy is noted for his progress! 
curiosity and generosity, ami has been studious to such a degree that 
what hi' has not learned in his three years of sliding down the 
"School" Steps is hardly worth knowing. Success to yon. Freeman! 




"Vota vita sua sdentiae." 

Hagerman, Frederick Graham (though born quite young, in 
Toronto, June 4th, 1889), received his early training and education 
in Cobourg. Passing the Entrance examination in 1902 and Matricu- 
lating in 1905, he left the Collegiate Institute in 1906 to commence 
his studies at the University of Toronto with the mighty class of 
Noughty-Nine in Applied Science. Always seeking scientific knowl- 
edge, he found just what he desired in the course of Electrical Engi- 
neering. Notwithstanding ' ' Harrigan 's ' ' dependable co-operation 
in any ' ' doings, " he is a good student, and may be found among 
the first at examinations. 



"His talents were for music rare, 

His playing made the crowd to swear." 
On September 21st, away back in the stirring times of '85, 
"Hammy" blew in on the prevailing equinoctial gales amid great 
rejoicing on the part of the good people of the then thriving town 
of Peterborough. Like all other children, he grew up, and when not 
making the lives of his school teachers miserable, he busied himself 
repairing the family doorbell, and so proficient did he become at this 
that his parents decided he should become an Electrical Engineer. 
Being a dutiful son, he followed their advice, and now we find him 
graduating from Toronto with the class of '09. His vacations have 
been most profitably spent in everything from winding armatures to 
running launches and automobiles. Here's looking at you, Hammy! 


"A gentleman in whom I have 
An absolute trust." 

At Brampton, in the year 1889, the light of this world first shone 
in the eyes of C. J. Harper. Naturally of a roaming disposition, he 
selected Parry Sound as the scene of his public school education. 
His brilliant student abilities were early evident when he matricu- 
lated from the Aurora High School in 1904. After spending two 
years with a lumbering firm in Northern Ontario, he entered the 
class of '09 in Applied Science. Choosing the Electrical option, he 
carried his first year with honors, and took a high standing among his 
classmates at the second annual ordeal. His heavy tread becomes 
rapidly familiar to every acquaintance, and that he will make his 
mark in the Engineering profession is conceded by all. 


"I (could become better acquainted with thee." 

John gave his first yell in Kleinburg, and after graduating from 
the public school in his native town obtained his Senior Leaving at 
Toronto Junction, and spent a year at O. N. C, Hamilton. In 1906, 
although principal of Burk's Falls H. S., he decided to adopt still 
another yell, and with the famous ' ' Naughty-Nines ' ' he entered 
S. P. S., where he has obtained honor standing throughout. He has 
been an enthusiastic rooter at all college games, and a very active 
Association football player, having played with the champion Inter- 
mediates when a freshman, and afterwards with Senior School. 




"With many a social virtue graced." 

Auh. was ushered into this, to him, happy world via Owen Sound. 
Prom tin- beginning he was a favorite, especially of the ladies. 
Eaving maintained this position in the town of his birth, he gradu- 
ated with Honor Matriculation from the O. S. C. I., and proceeded to 
do Toronto. As a preliminary he entered the "School" with the 
famous "Naught-Nines," where he has made many friends. Promi- 
nent in good society, a master of the piano ami violin, and always 
a true sport, lie lias nevertheless well maintained his class standing. 
He intends at some time in the near future to be an Electrical Engi- 
neer and lie will! 



"In every charm, in every grace, 
None can excel thy smiling face." 

"Hermangus" hailed from Eillsburg, ami after learning his A, 

B, ("s in the Orangeville High Sel 1, lie proceeded to uplift the 

juvenile mind by imparting to it some of his useful knowledge. He 
soon decided, however, that pedagogy "as not his sphere, and came 

to the S. I'. S., enlisting in the mighty ranks of the class of 'll!l. 
Although he lias always found plenty of time for amusement, the 
position of his name in the class list assures us that he has not been 
idle when the exams, were near. During his sojourn here Ilyudmnn 

has made many friends, who wish him every success after graduation. 


"Me was a man of an unfounded stomach, 

In maiden inclination, fancy free." 

The catastrophies of the early eighties were largely retrieved by 
the birth of John Isbister. Born near Wingham, he survived the 
public school, retiring to the farm to recuperate. At length, armed 
with Nature's own appetite, he set forth to matriculate at Gloderich 
Collegiate, which, naturally, he did readily. Compassion for the 
youthful freshman class of '09 brought him down to add lustre to 
their dimly shining halo. John has quietly and unobtrusively but 
steadily gained the esteem of his classmates, and his persistent, faith- 
ful labors have crowned him with success on every occasion of test. 
Long may he live to enjoy a well-earned prosperity! 


"A heart to resolve, a hi ad to contrive, and a hand to execute." 
F. P. Jackes, who has proved himself one of York County's 
brightest sons, was born in Markham Township in January, 1SSS. 
At an early age he attended public school at the village of Thorn- 
hill. He obtained his Junior Leaving and matriculation certificates 
at Richmond Hill High School in 1906, whereupon he began his 
career at the S. I'. S. "Frank - * was always a good sport, playing 
"soccer' - splendidly, and was one on whom we always could rely, 
both for his genial temperament and straightforward manner. From 
his liking and ability for Electrical Engineering we are looking for- 
ward to seeing a second Fdisou. 



"He has merit, good nature and integrity, 
And all unite in perfect harmony." 
J. Beverley O. Kemp first smiled on the world in Seaforth in 
1888, and five years later "sat down at the feet of Gamaliel." Af- 
ter obtaining his entrance, he attended the Seaforth Collegiate 
Institute until good fortune brought him to Toronto. He matricu- 
lated from Parkdale Collegiate Institute in 1905, and entered the 
S. P. S. with the industrious class of '09, in the Mechanical and 
Electrical Department. The first vacation was spent chiefly in West- 
ern Ontario, surveying on the C. P. R. Kemp has been active in 
Y. M. C. A. work during undergraduate years, being an energetic 
leader in a sectional class, while his neatly gowned figure is familiar 
in the aisles of Convocation Hall during College Sermons. 


"A youth to Fame and Fortune not unknown." 
The shrill pibroch of the new-born babe first rent the air Septem- 
ber 13th, 1887. Always studious, never forgetful of his higher call- 
ing, "Pipp" passed his matric. in 1905. Entered the sacred pre- 
cincts of S. P. S. October, 1906. Although destined by ability and 
capacity for holy orders, he soon became famous by his talents and by 
his infinite capacity — for work. Gained his practical experience at 
the Woodbine, Dufferin Park and Latonia. We know not what the 
future holds for one of such sterling genius. If this genius were 
turned to proper channels, "Mike" might become an Electrical En- 
gineer. But the lure of the ' ' ponies ' ' seems too irresistible. We 
know not what the future holds. Alas! 


In introducing A. W. Lamont it is necessary to refer to that 
noted Western Ontario town, Strathroy, where he, under the skilful 
tuition of J. E. Wetherell, graduated from the S. C. I. in the year 
1906. Having in his anatomy that all-requisite composition, energy, 
he determined to expend a degree of the surplus in that line most 
congenial to his nature. Thus 'Varsity and S. P. S. '09 acquired a 
student whose keen perception and diligence has won for him a suc- 
cessful course and an enviable reputation as a student in Electrical 
Engineering. With a view to being nulli secundus the ' ' School ' ' 
has always found a live supporter in peace or war. In sending him 
from these historic precincts to combat the world we do not hesitate 
to predict a future of brilliant success and achievement in his chosen 



"No flowers — by request." 

The subject of this attack first saw the shine of the Canadian 
moon in "the chosen city" of Ottawa. It is rumored that at the 
age of 12 he set off for Victoria, B.C., and thence into the Yukon. 
He matriculated into Toronto in 1905, and in the following year for- 
sook the Land of the Midnight Sun and journeyed out to Toronto, 
where he used his usually good discretion and joined the S. P. S. '09 
class in the Electrical course. 


The Annual Excursion of the Engineering Society 

UR trip this year was to Buffalo, and 
everyone was well pleased with the 
selection. All those who had not 
been to Buffalo had heard so much 
about its attractions. Engineering 
and otherwise, that they had no 
doubt but that the attendance would 
be a record-breaker, as indeed it 
turned out to be. Those who had already seen that city of 
power plants and steel works needed no urging to go. 

The morning of the eventful day dawned cold but bright, 
and for once in their career the impossible was accomplished, 
all the men managing to turn out before 8.45 a.m. Some 
of the boys, however, did not seem to have time to finish 
their breakfasts, for they turned up at the station still 

After the usual delays, we found ourselves on the train, 
each year's men having a separate coach. The passage over 
was a little rough, for those fellows who were fortunate 
enough to possess newspapers made good use of them as 
batons by trying to put new ideas into their neighbors' 

heads as to what a good time we were going to have. Some 
inquisitive freshman pulled the bell-rope to see if the brakes 
were in good condition and found, to his surprise, that 
they were. 

On the train the members of the faculty divided the 
men into groups of about fifty in order to get around more 
easily to the points of interest. We were fortunate enough 
to be allotted to Professor Bain's party, which was the 
first one to visit the Lackawanna Steel AVorks. 

The Buffalo police force is quite dissimilar to the 
"savage-minded" Toronto corps, and accordingly we had 
no trouble with them whatever; whereas, had it been in 
Toronto, we would have had the whole police force and 
the fire brigade encamped on our trail. 

The pretty maidens also made quite an impression, win- 
ning not only the hearts but also the ribbons and arm-bands 
of several would-be engineers. Question — "Who's Hoos? 

The Lackawanna Co. had evidently heard of our fame 
and had a special police force to escort us through the 
works. We spent several hours very profitably at this 
immense plant, going from building to building and seeing 

Stoney Creek." 

The Annual Excursion of the Engineering Society — Continued 

some fresh point of interest at each turn. Some of the 
most striking features were the power-house, blowing 
engines, and the Bessemer plant. 

Leaving there we headed back to the Thomas Motor 
Works, where we saw the modern automobile in all stages 
of construction — from the carpenter and machine shops to 
the testing and finishing departments. 

We then visited the street railway power station which 
supplies part of the electric power for the system, the rest 
being received from Niagara. 

This completed our tour for the day and we finished at 
Statlers', where the banquet was held, just in time to avoid 
the rush. Everyone had an enjoyable time at the banquet, 
at the close of which the Dean was presented with the largest 
smoke ever captured alive. 

As this was Hallowe'en, we had a lively time going 
through the streets on the way to the station, where the 
day was ended by dancing the may-pole around a couple 
of nice girls and their "School" escorts. A lonely "cop" 
finally butted in and stopped the proceedings. Then some 
poor foolish sophs, tried to force their company on us on 
the way home and were gently (?) but firmly (!) ejected. 

At Stoney Creek we were stalled by a derailment near 
Hamilton, and. as the night was chilly, we soon had a bon- 
fire going which made things livelier than usual for the 
villagers of Stoney Creek. A nearby orchard furnished 
a few frozen apples and it is even rumored that a couple of 
fellows routed out a farmer at 2 a.m. Sunday in order 
to get something to eat. 

We finally got started again about three o'clock and on 
reaching Hamilton found only two innocent-looking "cops" 
on the platform, though we afterwards learned that there 
were thirty more in the station waiting for us to get off 
the train — it being reported that we had sacked Welland 
as we came through that town. 

When we reached home there was a cold and weary 
squad of police at nearly every corner. They had been 
waiting since midnight for us to get back. Beyond a few 
Toike-Oikes nothing of serious nature occurred and a more 
tired or sleepy-looking mass of students than the redoubt- 
able S.P.S. would have been hard to find. 

"And when we're out, we're out for fun, 
We put all others on the bum."

Dougald "Doo'' began Engineering in lona. After various ups 
and downs, principally ups, he looked in upon Dutton High School. 
1 1 ere he did some electrical work on the baseball diamond, but 
( scaped a National League pay envelope by burying himself in the 
tall of 1906 under the Yellow, Blue and White. Ever and always 
he lias had the interests of the "School" at heart, and was never 
loath to lend his manly form to defend its honor. Prom his native 
town he brought with him quite a number of culinary ideas, which 
he Ins often put under test in the various laboratories open to the 
elass of '09. Here's success to I). D. ! 



The illustrious subject of this bit of history joined the McCollum 

clan on June 8th, 1882. Union Scl I No. .">, Pelham, was responsible 

for his early education, and in 1902 he matriculated from AVelland 
Eigh School. Pull of the restlessness of youth and desiring to see 
and find out for himself, he spent four years a " wanderer, trying 
to find his vocation. Always having a liking fur Applied Science. 
he showed his wisdom in coming to S. I'. S. in L906, where from the 
start he has made a splendid showing. Apart from his studies, he 
has taken a great interest in the S. I'. S. Camera Club, of which he 

is President. His many friends an nfident of a brilliant future, 

relying on his dogged determination to overcome all obstacles and 
make success his own. 


"He is a proper man'* picture." 

"Mac'' made his debut into this terrestrial sphere on January 
loth, 1888, making quite a sensation vocally. He early showed the 
trend of his disposition by his perfect good nature and an inclination 
to flirt with his toes. Graduating in 1903 from the St. Catharines 
Collegiate, ''Mac" gave evidence of his good judgment by coming 
to the School, becoming one of the best of that good bunch, the 'oil 
Electrieals. His course since then has been a triumphal one, as he 
has taken honors every year. Mac's energy, however, does not all 
run to book learning, for he is a splendid hockey player and musi- 
cian. Stan is well worthy of the best wishes of his friends and the 
high position he will soon attain. 



Was born near the village of Gamebridge. After receiving the 
usual amount of public school training, he spent tin' next two or 
three years in the Orillia Collegiate institute, and finally at Port 
Perry Model, where he qualified to mould the young mind. As 
teacher and also as student he showed perseverance and capability, 
and his efforts were rewarded with success. However, he acquired a 
longing for a higher education, and accordingly came to the School 
of Science, enrolling with the notable class of '09. During his college 
career he has made many lasting friends, and it gms without saying 
tnat he leaves the School with their earnest wishes for his future suc- 
cess in his chosen profession of Electrical Engineering.

"He was long, but we loved him.'" 

On a bright July day in 1885 J. H. McKnight obtained his first 
peep into this vale of sighs and tears. The place of this happy 
advent was near Simcoe, Norfolk county. After graduating from the 
Shncoe High School in 1905, he naturally gravitated toward the 
School as the seat of higher learning. Deciding that life with the 
studious (?) class of '08 was too slow% he threw in his lot with '09. 
Thus far his career has been one of successful endeavor, and one may 
feel safe in looking forward with anticipation to what the future 
years will bring him in the way of success in his chosen profession. 
May luck stay with him! 


was loaned this world September 29, 1884, from the county of 
Lanark. His barefoot days were spent in Norwood, Ont., and from 
the Norwood High School he graduated in 1902. Entering the ser- 
vice of the Canadian Pacific Railway as a telegrapher, he slung 
lightning and delayed trains for the next four years. Lured by the 
mysteries of the "juice" he played with, in 1906 he joined with us, 
the illustrious '09. In our more strenuous days he was always a 
participant, and his fame and popularity have spread among all his 
fellows. That it has spread still further was evidenced by the plur- 
ality of his pretty friends of Theatre Night.

"Certainly he deserves to pass who goes to bid late 
And still quite early rises." 

Why should I write O'Hearn's biography now? Except for a 
few incidentals, his career has been so pronounce^ that he is classed 
as one of the few, instead of one of the many. He was born in this 
city of churches on November 12th, 1886, and matriculated from St. 
Michael 's College in '05. He later came to the School, and has since 
been with the "boys." lie has always been prominent in all lines 
of sport, a keen baseball player, for we have all heard of him 
"spearing hot ones." He has several medals from athletics, thus 
making him a success in both study and sport. 



Guy was born at Carluke, Ont. He was introduced to the intrica- 
cies of Caesar and the Pons Asinorum at Caledonia. After spending 
some time acquiring worldly wisdom and incidentally certain base- 
ball fame, he decided on Electrical Engineering, and joined the 
Toike Oikes with the class of Naughty-Nine. Guy is a fine fellow in 
many ways, but he has one bad fault — he is far too modest. But 
murder will out, so his ability eventually became known, and he now 
enjoys the distinction of being a member of the Third Year Execu- 
tive. He is at once both popular with the boys — and girls — and a good 
student; he can head a rush or plot a curve with equal facility. We 
predict for Guy an office in the top floor of the Engineering world. 


• • Still water runs </< ep. ' ' 
The subject, or shall it be said victim, of this biography hails 
from Northumberland county. The first and also possibly the only 

ti that he has been in prominence was in 1889, at the time of his 

birth. Having passed through the primary stage of his education 
without any serious disaster, lie entered the highway to learning, and 
obtained his Junior Leaving at Colborne High School. After due 
consideration of various professions and get-rich-quick schemes, he 
decided on the most congenial of the former, and entered the School 
with the peerless class of '09. He has distinguished himself intellectu- 
ally and otherwise, and has been permitted by the "powers that be'' 
to remain with that class to the present time. 



"If In an n more generous gifts deny, 
lh will mil miss tin in much." 
The stork little thought when making his morning calls in the 
country town of Marburg, (int.. September 27th. 1885, be would ever 
have so much trouble with the precious contents of the basket con- j 
tabling what was afterwards to be known in the Engineering world as^* 
Cornelius .lames Porter. Like many others, the allurement of 

"Scl I" life proved too much, and so with great wisdom of choice 

we find "Neil" a '09 stalwart. Previous to this he spent one year 
at pedagogical life, and in that capacity we understand he will per- 
force be long remembered. Popular throughout, we find Neil on the 
Torontoueusis Hoard of '09, and predict for it, what wc do for his 

future career, the measure of true success. 



Irwin Proctor, commonly known as "Proc, " and intimately by 
many other high-sounding titles, was born Good Friday. April 23rd, 
1886, in the city of Hamilton, Ontario. He completed the regular 
city public and High School courses, and after obtaining matricula- 
tion added himself to the number making up the famous year of '08 
at the S. P. S. Unfortunately, he was unable to stick to 'em, and 
seeing the freshman class of '09, he took deep thought and waited 
for them and this spring will no doubt see him listed well up in the 
graduates of the class of '09. All who know "Proc." feel sure of 
his making a mark in life after he completes his course, and here's 
wishing him the best!

When, on January L8th, J.883, at Glen Williams, Out.. Lewis Rut-

who in future time was to give his life to scientific research. Years 
haw passed by, dining which "Lou." obtained his .Senior Leaving 
■ it Georgetown High School, afterwards devoting his energies toward 
imparting what knowledge he could in the noble calling of a school 
teacher. His Engineering inclinations and ambition for a higher 
education led him to enter the S. P. s. with the illustrious '09. His 
congenial and affable manner has gained him hosts of friends, and 
we feel assured that through his diligent pursuance of study and 
his vast practical experience in the northern wilds of Ontario his 
efforts towards advancement in his profession will be crowned with 


"Dick" made his appearance in this vale of tears in Toronto 
in the year 1888. His first efforts to bring smiles to the faces of the 
inhabitants of the aforesaid vale were at Wellesley School. One year 
at the Technical School and two at Jarvis Collegiate prepared him 
for S. P. S. Here he took up the study of transformers, accumu- 
lators and many other things in the electrical line too deep for the 
lay mind to grasp, but easily convinced the examiners that, he knew 
all about them. His sunny disposition and ready wit have made him 
a favorite with all who know him, while his common sense and 
capacity for work we recognized in his election as sub-editor of this 
volume and member of the Undergraduates ' Parliament. 



"He only asks that Fortune send 
A little more tlum Ik con spend." 

When on August 6th, 1884, there landed on this planet the sub- 
ject of our biography, the parental hope that the cries of " Toike 
Oike ' ' would never appeal to him proved futile. Accordingly, on 
matriculating from the Gait Collegiate Institute, 1902, he at once 
entered with the Goldie & McCulloeh Co., Gait, Out., as an appren- 
tice machinist. After serving his full time there he concluded that 
'09 was the best year the "School" would ever get, and so began 
his Varsity career in 1906. An ancient cricketer, like most graduates 
of (what was once the Gait) Dr. Tassie Grammar School, he is eager 
to sustain the past records of his former Alma Mater. 


"Type of the wise, who soar, but never roam." 

Born in Hamilton, August 27, 1888, this particular specimen 
attended the public schools of that ' ' City of the Blnff. ' ' Took 
entrance exams. 1902, and matriculated 1905. Entered S. P. S. 
October, 1906, in the Electrical Department, and passed his exams, 
with honors. While employed in the Westinghouse Company, of Ham- 
ilton, in 1906, he received the name of "Algie, " and that distin- 
guished cognomen has stuck closer than a brother. The united hope 
of '09 is that "Algie" will cross the last stepping stone with honors, 
and that some day he might become an Engineer. 



"Timely blossom, infant fair. 
Fondling of a happy pair." 

'Twas in Hamilton, on December 10th, 1888, that this particularly 
timely blossom first "oped his orbs of blue." Precocious, ever studi- 
ous, he was the darling of the lady teachers of the public schools of 
the Ambitious City. He gained the coveted entrance diploma in. 
1902, and then entered the Hamilton Collegiate Institute. He passed 
his matriculation examinations in 1905, and in 1906, impelled by the 
desire to emulate the glorious deeds of former warriors in the field 
of science, he entered S. P. S. He strode triumphantly through his 
freshman and sophomore years, and it is the most earnest hope of his 
friends that he will graduate successfully with the rest of the gradu- 
ates of good old 1909. 




"Here's an honest conscienci might a prince adorn." 
The subject of this biography was first introduced to the world 
.it Teeawater, Out., June 20, 1885. Here, during his younger years, 
he received his public school education. In 1903 he attended Tech- 
nical School, Toronto, studying mathematics and experimental sci- 
ence. Now for two years he is seen acting assistant in Electrical 
Laboratories, S. P. S., and gaining much practice and valuable 
knowledge. <bi October 1st, 1906, he entered S. P. S. as a student of 
Mechanical and Electrical Engineering. In this his graduating year 
lie has chosen the Electrical option. At the beginning of the term he 
was elected Vice-Presidenl of the S. P. 8. Electrical Club. 


••.1 proper man. as one shall see." 
The subject of this sketch appeared on December 28th, 1885. Of 
his early history suffice it that he graduated from the Chatham Col- 
legiate in 19n4 with a gold medal, and subsequently taught school for 
two years, where his sterling qualities were further developed. College 
life luring him on, he enrolled in the faculty of his choice in 1906. 
A brilliant scholar, he has shone to no less advantage as a member 
of the Undergraduates' Parliament from its inception; while as 
President of the "School" V. M. C. A. for 1908-09 and as one of 
the most respected men of the year, he has left his impress for good 
mi the School life and has gained the admiration and affection of all.

The night was dark and drear, when on April 5, 1886, another 
"mother's joy" was launched safely into this world, and Arthur 
Rivers Whitelaw became a native of the city of Brandon, Manitoba. 
Prom childhood into youth he grew, receiving his early training in 
the Brandon Collegiate, afterwards engaging in commercial business 
for two years. This, however, proved to he the wrong path in life, 
and we find him entering the S. 1'. S. in 1906 with the famous class 
of '09. His congenial manner and warm heart have won for him 
many friends, and his faithful pursuance of study, together with 
the practical experience gained in his native city, assures that his 
lite cannot but be crowned with success.

William George Collinson was horn in lsx-1 ;it Seeley 's Bay, 
Leeds county. He entered the Athens High School in 1905, and 
the following year succeeded in obtaining his Junior Matriculation. 
The choosing of a profession required little or no time, for through- 
out his High School career his mind was greatly absorbed with the 
science of Chemistry. Consequently the fall of 'n7 saw him enroll 
in the S. 1'. S. in the department of Analytical and Applied Chemistry. 
Although "Collie" went out with the hoys occasionally, he always 
made good when the test came. That he was a friend of all was 
shown by his being elected as a member of the Third-Year Executive.

"We build tin ladder by which wi rise." 

Alexander Robert Duff was born in Toronto, and has so far passed 
his life in that city. After illuminating llarbord Collegiate with 
his presence for two years, guided by a prophetic intuition, he 
entered a tannery. Presumably that step was taken to educate his 
sense of smell to the high standard required in a school chemical 
laboratory, for he reappeared in collegiate life at Parkdale, from 
which institute he matriculated. His initiative and originality exam- 
pled in his choice of the courses — Chemical Engineering— have been 
appreciated by his fellow students, who elected him to the pos 
of Vice-President of the Engineering Society.

where he has been and is attempting to gain a maximum amount 
of knowledge with minimum amount of work.

He was horn near Bowmanville, on Nov. 2, 1888. His 
early school-days were spent there, and in Western .Mani- 
toba. He entered high school in Brandon, but returned, 
when 17, to Bowmanville. where he claimed honors, and in 
his final year tied with a comrade for first position. 

While there, he decided to attend the School of Science, 
and enrolled in the fall of 1906. At the close of his fresh- 
man year, honors again fell to him. which was only natural, 
since he seemed happiest in the pursuit of his studies. 

Much of his second year was spent in chemical research 
and laboratory work. While thus engaged he unfortunately 
inhaled a quantity of nitrogen peroxide gas, wdiich later 
irritated his lungs to a very great extent. His studies, 
however, did not suffer lack of attention until scarlet fever 
confined him to his bed. and, on March 5, 1908 — less than 
a week from his last attendance at lectures — his death was 
reported among his fellow students. Then it was felt that 
one of the keenest of intellects and noblest of natures had 
"crossed into that undiscovered country from whose bourne 
no traveller returns." 

When the present shall have crystallized into the past 
he will be remembered for his extraordinary ability, good 
fellowship, and genial disposition. When we think of his 
exemplary habits, moral character, and devotion to high 
ideals, it helps lis to better understand that 

"Death's but a path that must be trod. 
If man would ever pass to God."

of four years at local High School, and having obtained his junior 
matriculation, he set out to earn a reputation at the far famed 
University of Toronto. Here he entered Faculty of Applied Science 
with the year of '09 Chemists. Morris came not only to gain

the error id' his ways, ami came to the School in L907. In the 
following slimmer, strange to say, he developed the mania for specula-

the summers being spent in surveying, construction work, prospecting, 
and economic geology. In 1906 he entered Chemist class '09, Faculty 
of Applied Science, and has again carried off honors. He was .,

[AMES Branston Willmott, D.D.S., M.D.S. 

History of Royal College of Dental Surgeons 

"Who is not proud of infant humbleness, 
When the lofty heights of greatness are attained?" 

HERE is probably not a college in 
America, and perhaps not in the 
world, that has developed by its 
own individual efforts so steadily 
and surely as has the R.C.D.S. 
Without Government grants, or 
private bequests, or aid in any 
form from any outside source, it 
has grown in thirty-three years 
from a school occupying three small 
rented rooms to one that will in a 
year hence have a building and 
equipment not excelled by any other 
dental college in the world. In the same time the attendance 
has increased from eleven to two hundred and twenty-five. 

This is a record that the dentists of Ontario may well 
feel proud of, as the College from the time of its incorpora- 
tion has been owned and managed by them. But a great 
share of the honor is due to a few individuals who gave 
imsparingly their great talents to its development. Chief 
among these are Dean Willmott and Dr. Luke Teskey. who 
can be said to be the Fathers of the R.C.D.S. 

Previous to the year 1875 there was no systematic means 
of obtaining a dental education in Ontario. But at a meet- 
ing of the Ontario Dental Society, held in the city of 
Hamilton, in July of that year, a resolution was adopted 
asking the Board of Examiners of the R.C.D.S. to arrange 
for the opening of a School of Dentistry in Toronto. Acting 
on this request the Board arranged with Dr. J. B. Willmott 
and Dr. Luke Teskey to organize a Dental School, they taking 
the whole financial responsibility, the Board making a grant 
for fittings and for the rent. 

The first session opened November 1st, 1875, with eleven 
students in attendance, occupying rented rooms on the 
corner of King and Church Streets, in the building now 
used by the Toronto Street Railwav as head office. 

From the first Dr. Willmott has acted as Dean, but 
some years ago Dr. Teskey retired to devote his whole time 
to his practice as a surgeon. In 1877 Dr. W. T. Stuart 
became a member of the Faculty and still continues to 
amaze the students with vast knowledge of chemistry and 

The next few years saw the popularity of the College 
rapidly increase, and, consequently, changes of location had 
to be made in order to accommodate the growing number 
of students. In 1878 the College removed to rooms at the 
corner of Victoria and Richmond. Still larger rooms being 
required, removal was made to 13 Louisa Street. 

In 1888 the R.C.D.S. became affiliated with the Univer- 
sity of Toronto, and on April 22nd, 1889, the degree of 
D.D.S. was conferred on twenty-five graduates by the 
University, the first degree in Dentistry conferred by a 
British University. 

In 1892 the business of the College was placed in the 
hands of a Board of Directors, which arrangement has 
continued ever since, and the course was extended to three 
sessions of six months each. 

The continued growth of the School necessitated still 
greater accommodation, and in 1896 a new college was 
erected at 93 College Street. On October 3rd it was 
formally opened by Sir Geo. Kirkpatrick. Lieut. -Governor 
of Ontario. In 1898 and 1903 two additions were made to 
the college. 

In keeping with the tendency to more thorough instruc- 
tion, in 1901 the Board decided that commencing with the 
session of 1903-04 the course shoidd be four sessions of 
seven months each. 

Plans for another addition to the college were approved. 
But as the ground now occupied by the college was required 
for the new General Hospital it was sold in 1907, and 
preparations were made to erect a new college at the corner 
of Huron and College Streets.

History of Class '09, R.C.D.S. 


OW short a time it all seems 
since first, with timid steps, 
we, as freshmen, slunk into the 
large lecture room to hear the 
Dean's opening lecture! None of 
us have forgotten our freshman 
dread of the sophs. — dread till we 
learned that our class outnumbered 
theirs two to one, and that we 
might live in comparative safety. 
As the term progressed and we ad- 
vanced through the various stages 
of our work, from the simplest 
prosthetic case to mud teeth and 
thence to our ivory pucks, we be- 
came more composed in mind, so 
much so that we early earned a 
reputation for ourselves as kickers. 
How we dreaded the commencement of our second year ! 
The terrors of the dissecting room loomed large before our 
eyes, but a week or two so thoroughly acclimatized us to 
the sweet fragrance and pleasant scenes that Cunningham 
presents, that, by Christmas, it must have been witli feelings 
of deepest regret that we bade adieu to our subs. After 
such strenuous plugging of anatomy, the remainder of the 
year seemed one of comparative ease, and, with crown and 
bridgework to keep us company, we enjoyed it to the 

After preliminary instructions in cavity preparation 
for a couple of months in our junior year we entered the 
infirmary to give practical exhibitions of our skill as oper- 
ators. The trials of the first few days will be firmly 
impressed on most of us to our dying days, and our exciting 

experiences will undoubtedly be invaluable to us some time 
in our practice. But we soon overcame our timidity and 
felt ourselves equal to anything at the close of the session. 
In this year, too, did we give evidence to Dr. Stuart of 
our ability as practical chemists. 

What a difference it was to come back as a senior and 
feel that the other classes must look up to us and ask us 
for advice ! Our work in the infirmary now presented to 
us no difficulties, being merely practice. Dr. Stewart's 
practical bacteriology classes proved interesting and instruc- 
tive to us and we further improved our acquaintance with 
Dr. Stuart while learning the rudiments of practical 
metallurgy. In our senior year, though our entire work 
was pleasant to us, the 
pleasure was overshadowed 
by feelings of regret that, 
for the last time, are we 
to come back as students 
to the R.C.D.S. to partici- 
pate in some of the good 
times like we used to have. 

From the first our class 
has been a class of leaders. 
In athletics we have more 
than held our own. In our 
second year our hockey 
team landed the Beattie 
Nesbitt Cup; '09 has al- 
ways been represented on 
the school handball team ; 
and every year our class has 
held the soccer champion- 
ship. G. E. F.

run the gauntlet of infantile diseases, including the cutting of his 
milk teeth, etc., Joseph Elmer was [tacked off to the public, high, and 
finally the model school, winning a Second Class Certificate, under 
which he taught in the village of Denfield, Ont. He then spread 
canvas for the R.C.D.S., Toronto, in '05. In Association football he 
lias been a member of the 'Varsity Senior Intercollegiate champions 
in '07 and '08, and of the Dental Senior Interfaculty champions of 
'06, which team he captained in his senior year. Of his future suc- 
cess, time will doubtless be generous with him, at least so it has been 



".I mini, .si spirit i lull had great strength." 

Was |,urn at Joekvale, near Ottawa, in October 1887. A few 
years later his parents moved to Manotiek, where he received his 
public school education. Matriculating from the Ottawa Collegiate in 
11)11."), lie came to Toronto the same year and entered the course in 
Dentistry. During the four years, Allan has taken a deep interest in 
Y.M.C.A. mirk of his college, and this year holds the position ot 
President of that Society. His broad sympathies and quiet strength 

of character have gained th mfidence and regard of those who 

ii.i' e been associated with him. 



"(>»;■ lift is a cycle, so let's be prepared '« race." 

One morning in September, 1SS2, there was ushered into this be- 
wildered world in Valleyfield, Quebec, one Webster John Armstrong. 
While still a lad he moved to the beautiful town of Iroquois, where 
some education was instilled into his youthful brain. Here lie be- 
came an honored sage, known among his classmates as the ••Oratori- 
cal Jew," and by his strength and ability hail his name indelibly 
printed on the walls of fame as a cyclist. Deciding that his calling 
was Dentistry, he entered the R.C.D.S. October. '05. During his 
College career he made many friends, by whom he will he rememhcr- 
e 1 for many years to come. 



"In fiiinn iri 'II hi glad lii sail ir, knew him." 

Frank, iu 1886, first graced mother earth at Hensall. Huron 
county. His early education was received there, lmt the finishing 
touches were put on at Seaforth Collegiate. While there his fond- 
ness for football threw him as a participant in the Bough Trophy 
competition. On entering the R.C.D.S. in L905 this fondness did not 
wane and we find him playing in both intermediate and senior games 
with the speedy Dents. By his winning ways he has been a class 
favorite and been elected Secretary of the Litandeb, and Sr. Kept, on 
the Undergraduates ' Union, also a member of the Hya Yaka staff. 
His shooting abilities were displayed this fall, he having had a place 
on the team which won the DoDury Shield, and also a winner in the 
Dominion Rifle Association. Very bright prospects are his for the 
future and we all wish him the best of luck. 




"The slum I 
Of battle now began, and rushing sound 
Of onset ended soon each milder thought.'' 

At Mount Forest, Ont., August 3rd, 1880, the subject of this 
biography started a career that will doubtless leave many deeply- 
marked footprints in the sands of time. George attended the public, 
high and model schools at home and later taught school in the neigh- 
borhood of Pembroke. In 1901 he joined the army, took part in the 
Boer War and remained in South Africa for the period of 
three years. In recognition of his services lie received the 
Queen's South African Medal with four clasps. He has filled various 
offices most efficiently as President of Senior Class, Secretary of Hya 
Yaka and Representative on Students' Parliament. 


"But yet I'll malt assurance doubly sure, 
And l<ik< a hand of fate." 

On the ninth day of August, 1884, in Eganville, Arthur arrived 
upon the scene. Not only is he a young man of sterling qualities, 
affable, and pleasant, but he possesses all the good points which go 
to make a man successful in the practice of Dentistry. His win- 
some smile detracts from the sufferings inseparable from the treat- 
ment of the teeth. A bright future awaits him. 




' ' There 's none but In 
Whose being I do fear." 
Conferred the honor of his birth to Snelgrove, Ont., first blinking at 
the sun in 'H~>. His primary education was received at Brampton 
High School, from which he matriculated in '05. His better instincts 
tended towards Dentistry so he swelled the '09 class. Jimmy has ac- 
quitted himself well in his class work, but has not confined himself to 
this alone, taking an active part in several of the student activities. 
He has always been a football enthusiast, playing on one of the teams 
each year.

tested his endurance by graduating from the (ioderich Collegiate 
and the Model School. Then followed three and a half years of 
pedagogical instruction of the young. Not finding this the height 
of his ambition, he joined the freshmen of October, '05. His 
gentlemanliness made him many friends, who elected him Vice- 
President of the Litandeb, and Associate Editor of the Hya Yaka 
in his final year. He is a member of the Y. M. < '. A., but has no

education began immediately — a fact which must account for his 
being the youngest in his class. Reg. matriculated from Brampton 
in '05, and immediately began his four years penance in the 
R.C.D.S. His fame lies chiefly in the athletic world, and no man 
lias ever done more to uphold the Denital College in sports. On 
Varsity Field Day he won the individual championship, and com- 
posed on the two winning Track Teams at Kingston and Mont- 
real, making a record for the hammer throw. His popularity is 
unlimited in the College and University. He is a member of the 
Executive, being President of the Track Club.

Cordon A. Elliott was born in the city of Branitford, in the 
Province of Ontario, on December 23rd, lXSti. He was educated in 
Brantford schools until lie matriculated, and in 1904 entered the 
R.C.D.S. The first year he was elected to a position on the At- 
Home Committee, and. being re-elected, held the position for three 
successive years. In the final year he was elected Chairman of 
the At-Home Committee by acclamation. Besides being an apt 
stu lent, he was always a leader in the social sphere of the college. 
His jovial manner and smart appearance won him a high standing 
in the good-fellowship of his college chums. 



"Sport, thai tin wrinkled care derides, 
Ami Laughter, holding both his sides." 
Ralph Waldo Emerson, commonly called by his associates "Dr. 
Goslee," first disturbed the neighbors in Toronto, 1884, and has 
done so almost continuously ever since. After matriculating in 
Parkdale Collegiate, he began the study of Dentistry in 1905. His 
efficiency and popularity have been evidenced by the offices which 
he has held, viz., Vice-President of his year in 'OS, Secretary in 
'ii9. Vice-Chairman of the Executive, and, by no means the least. 
President of the Scrap Iron Club, and Hon. Member of the Prophy- 
lactic club. Combining, as he does, affability and a pleasing address 
with tenacity of purpose, sequence of thought, and a thorough know- 
ledge of his chosen profession, nothing but success awaits him. 
Hereafter he will lie heard from outside the confines of mere

1887, has not been idle. Not finding room among the rocks to 
develop his mental powers, be moved to Toronto, and later to 
Brampton, where he obtained his matriculation prior to entering 
the R.C.D.S. While in his freshman year he spent most of his 
time on the handball court. Later we find him tilling such im- 
portant offices as Secretary Junior Class and of the Executive; 
local and first associate Editor of the Hya YaTca; Representative 
on Toroiitoiiensis, and various offices of the Scrap Iron Club. Being 
a master of detail, he has given sufficient evidence in the in-

Being of a modest and retiring disposition "Doc." — as he is 
known to his classmates — might object strenuously to his age being 
made public, but on inquiry it was found that he was born in the 
beautiful little town of Barrie in dune. 1883. Further discovery 
revealed the fact that while still quite young he moved with his 
parents to Meaford. where he received his primary education. 
After matriculating from the IIik r h School he entered the class 
of '09. While "Doe." has not much to say his opinions are 
always valued, and he is a general favorite around the College. 
With him in all his work it is quality and not quantity which 
counts, so we predict for him a bright and prosperous future.

Wi' pitying moan; 
But thee— thou hell o' a' diseases! 

Aye mocks our groan.

As round the fire the giglefs hecRle 

To see me loup; 
While, raving mad, I wish a heckle

Or worthy friends raked i' the mools 

Sad sight to see ! 
The tricks o' knaves, or fash o' fools,

Where'er that place be priests ca' hell, 
Whence a' the tones o' mis'ry yell, 
And ranked plagues their numbers tell,

Till daft mankind aft dance a reel

To be a moment's ornament." 
Is an importation from Belfast in the Emerald Isle, her first 
home in Canada being at London. After obtaining her education 
there she became so proficient in some of the denital laboratories 
that Dentistry appealed to her as a life calling. The death of 
her father necessitated Hie removal of the family to Tillsonburg, 
where Miss Holmes, by special act of the Ontario Legislature, 
practised dentistry for a time. On the expiration of the license 
she decided to graduate in the E.C.D.S. and make the license 
permanent. Having had Sadie with us in just our senior year we 
regret more and more as time progresses that it was not for the 
entire course. With her skill as an operator. Miss Holmes' prac-

been an ardent supporter of all branches of athletics, having 
played with the Dental Rugby, Hockey and Association Teams, and 
fur the past two years with the Varsity Senior Association Team. 
Socially, he has hail the unique distinction of being President of 
the Prophylactic Club since that brotherhood was founded. His 
bright, brisk, business-like and affable manner stamp him as a 
man upon whom Dame Fortune must surely smile. His future as 
a professional man and as a citizen is rosy. We wish him every

on Ives Hill and the Compton Model School. From the latter his 
footsteps turned 'to Stanstead Wesleyan College, where he obtained 
a high degree of proficiency in his studies.' On leaving Stanstead

from Hillsboro High School he entered Acadia University at Wolf- 
ville, took a general course, receiving his degree of Bachelor of 
Arts in 1905. Following this he spent a year in mercantile life, 
and in the fall of '06 wended his way to Toronto to take up the 
study of Dentistry. Putting the greater part of four years work 
into three his activities were few, outside of the Y.M.C.A. and 
music. However, he has stood high in his classes, and as a friend 
of his said, ' ' He wore wen with the fellows. ' ' Judging from 
his college career we may safely say, Carman's future success is 
already assured.

sea-board a classic finish at the Model School and Collegiate, with 
a year at Albert College, Belleville. His military training was in 
the Princess Louise Dragoon Guards. He graduated in Dental

" The herald ends, the vaulted firmament 
With loud, acclaim and vast applause is rent." 
"Bob" opened his peepers in Lucknow in 1886, and later 
focused his lamps on Embro, which town he has since illuminated. 
Before entering R.C.D.S. he attended Woodstock College and 
McMaster University. From the first he has been extremely 
popular, as evidenced by his election to Vice-President of the 
Freshman class and later to Treasurer of the Prophylactic Club. 
His presence was always significant of a joke of high order— the 
cause of his being christened "1'andenionium'' by the Scrap Iron 
Club. In his infirmary practice he has been most successful, and, 
in a community appreciative of conscientious treatment and skilled 
workmanship, he will make for himself a reputation as an expert.

What more would you have?" 

Frank Homer Moore resided for a number of years at Limehouse, 
Ont., and matriculated in 1905 from the Georgetown High School. 
He then entered the Merchants Dank, but after three years of 
business experience in different places he decided to follow the 
Dental profession. The Xi Psi Phi elected him a member of the 
Omieron Chapter, in which he has snu-e held an esteemed place. 



"True conscious honour is to feel no sin, 
He's armed without, that's innocent within." 

We are pleased to present the only living impersonator of the 
famous Duster Drown, but we regret that Mary .lane didn 't come 
too. 'Twas in Delleville, in 1888, that this illustrious personage 
was first heard of. After obtaining his matriculation at the Delle- 
ville High School "Duster" decided to register in the R.C.D.S., 
and it happened, fortunately for both the class and himself, that 
he joined the class of '09. "Duster" doesn't look fierce, but he 
has a reputation as a w T restler, and has won many medals for his 
showing on the mat. Everybody likes the original Duster, and the 
same state of affairs prevails in the R.C.D.S., so we feel no anxiety 
about "Duster" not making good as a Dentist. 


"Erin Mavourneen, Erin-go-oragh!" 

Martin James O 'Oallaghan was born near Kars, Ont., in 1886. 
He received his preliminary education at his native village, after 
which he pursued his studies at Kemptville High School. During 
his sojourn at the Kemptville High School he proved himself an 
enthusiast in and energetic promoter of athletics. Upon graduation 
in 1905 he entered upon his great life work, the pursuit of Dentistry, 
in the R.C.D.S. Here he achieved much notoriety in the capacity. 
not only of an efficient student, but also of an ardent sportsman, 
being a member of two championship football and handball teams. 
His executive ability gained for him the offices of President of 
the Handball Club, Treasurer of the Executive and Curator; and let 
us hope that his exemplary character shall continue to contribute 
to the common weal. 



" . . . . They tried me with their books 
Lord, they'd have taught me Latin in, pure waste!"

we find him a pupil in the Shelburne Continuation School, where 
he remained until entering the R.C.D.S. in '05, except for a short 
time spent in the Prairie Province. He is a good sportsman and 
has figured on the defence field of the Dauntless Lacrosse Club for 
several seasons. Judging from the success of his college course 
w T e predict for him a brilliant future.

1886. "Weidy" received his public and High School education 
at home, and after having matriculated registered at the R.C.D.S. 
With the boys he is the best of good fellows, being one of the 
founders of the Scrap Iron Club. While of a raither retiring 
disposition he has a flow of natural wit and good humor that was 
responsible for many of the hearty laughs always associated with 
our good times at College. He took an active interest in sports of 
all kinds, and at his profession has shown such exceptional practical 
ability 'that we can see nothing but success in the future. 



"A rare dear friend amour/ my many friends, 
As true as .steel, as faithful as the years." 
Albert Harold Pratt was born at North Gower on the 16th day 
of the stormy month of January, 1887. He received his preliminary 
education at the public school of his native town, and in the 
autumn of 1902 entered Kemptville High School, receiving his 
Junior Leaving and Junior Matriculation Certificates in June, 1904. 
Being of an energetic and ambitious turn of mind his inclinations 
leaned to the professional ranks, and he chose Dentistry as his 
path to success. In the autumn of 1905 he appeared at the R.C.D.S. 
and threw in his lot with the class of '09. During his College 
course he has won the respect and esteem of those with whom he 
came in contact, and his future career will be watched with 
interest by them. 


"In quietness a miracle; in work a wonder." 

Wilfred Johnston Preston was born at Bethany, Durham county, 
June 17th, 1877. After passing the Entrance 'he spent a year at 
the Lindsay High School, and matriculated from the Port Hope 
High School in 1896. He then returned home for a number of 
years and helped to till his father's farm. But answering a call 
to Dentistry, he entered the R.C.D.S. in October '05. Since then 
he has taken a prominent part on the Dental Association Football 
Teams, being on the team which won the Intermediate Champion- 
ship '05- '06. He was indentured with Dr. Walton Ball, Toronto. 
His quiet, gentlemanly ways and his ability as an operator will 
combine to make for him a successful future. 



"7 .stood and listened and heard a sound inexpressibly 

melodious. " 
This musical prodigy was born in Chesley on April 18th, L888. 
His musical education must have begun immediately, for at the age 
of eight he played the piano at a concert. Having moved to 
Walkerton he attended the public and High Schools there, but not 
being a book-worm, he was highly pleased to leave them behind, 
to join the Naughty-Nines. He found examinations a bore and 
inconvenience, but always managed to circumvent them. As a 
member of the At-Home and Harmonica Committees, and President 
of the Xi Psi Phi, he displayed his executive ability. He has been 
organist in several churches, and is a lieutenant in the 32nd 
Regiment. Harvey will be heard from again.

Arnold first awoke in the balmy climate of southern Simcoe. in 
the town of Tottenham. November -7. 1887. Migrating to Orange- 
ville, Ontario, he receiver] his public and part of his High 
School education, matriculating from Harbord Collegiate, Toronto, 
in '05. As a member of '09 he lias taken part in many of the 
student activities. His chief delight was in rugby, so he was 
elected President of that Club, and no man has ever worked so 
diligently as he to promote the Dental Team. He is ot a genial 
disposition, honest and truthful, and a general favorite with his

J. A. Ross, born in the year 1885 in the town of Lindsay, Out. 
where he receive, I his public and High School education until 1904. 
The two following years were spent in Woodstock College, from 
where he matriculated in '05. It was then he decided to pursue his 

studies, choosing Dentistry as his profession. From the first Jack 
has always been one of the boys, and we feel sure of his success 
as a Dent ist. 


"Thy in in.': pursue paths of renown uml climb ascents of fame." 
Charlie was born on Fairview Farm, in Oxford county, in 1883. 
Received public school training at Drumbo. Matriculated from 
Woodstock College in 1902. Returning to the farm, he labored 
with agricultural problems for three years. Owing to death of 
parents he disposed of the old homestead in March. 1905, and 
spent the summer in the West and on the Pacific (oast. In the fall 
of 1905 he entered Dentistry, and here he has won the respect and 
good-will of all his fellow-students. He is an ardent member and 
officer of the Y.M.< '.A. We predict for him a bright future.

1904, and the following fall entered the B.C.D.S. During his 
indentureship with Dr. J. C. Devitt, Bowmanville, he was a member 
of the football team thai won the Junior Championship of the 
Midland League, and the next year the Senior Championship of

"When trim and circumstanct suggest, 
I shall niii fail to do my best." 
Peel township, Wellington county, honored itself in giving Royal 
Elgin Stewart a birthplace on December 23rd, 1884. The public 
school, and eventually the Elora High and Model Schools, assisted 
him to obtain a Second-Class Certificate. He taught in Peel for 
two years, when he received a definite call to ascend higher, and sit 
at the feet of the Gamaliel of the B.C.D.S., Toronto. He spent his 
final term of pupilage with Dr. W. D. Cowan, Secretary of the 

D inion Dental Council at Rogina: the other two terms being 

spent with Dr. Knlbfloisch. of Elmira, Out. He is a member of the 
College fraternity. This quiet, pushing young man will no doubt 
''make good'' as the years open before him. 


••'/'In nitiii worth while is tin man with a smih when

'fhe High School in Brussels gave "Jim" a liberal education 
and a matriculation certificate, and in 1905 this worthy son entered 
the Royal College of Dental Surgeons; there to work the "pull" for 
all he was worth. For two years he was a member of the choir of Old 
St. Andrew's Church, .limmie plays football often and tennis some- 
times. Last year, under his management and brilliant work as centre 
forward, the Varsity Association Football Team won the Intel 
collegiate Championship. With his amiable disposition and winning 
smile he is a great favorite with the fair sex, and will no doubt he a 
great success wherever be may care to hang out his shingle. 






"It is a jini thing to b a perfect gentleman." 

Elgar was born in Mitchell, August 19th, 188(3. While at High 
School he took an active part in sports, especially cycling. He 
matriculated in 1905, and in the fall of the same year he entered 
upon the study of Ids chosen profession. He has always made a 

g I Showing in his work, and by his ever cheerful manner has 

always been the friend of each and every one of his classmates. 
His many good qualities will no doubt win for him many friends 
and a large practice wherever he may drift. 



"For manners an not idle, but tht fruit 
Of loyal nature, and of noblt mind. 

The subject of this sketch was bom at Mount Pleasant in May 
of the year 1886. While at Uxbridge High School he took an active 
interest in sports and cycling, winning several long distance events. 
The examinations allowed him to graduate too young, and it took 
some experience in travelling and Pharmacy to show him his proper 
calling. He entered the class of '09, has always been conspicuous 
in his practical work, and has also stood well in examinations. His 
love for experience and the breezy spirit of 'nil attracted him to 
the West for his last summer. "Era." has shown experience 
beyond his years in Y.M.r.A. and lli/n Ydka work.

Carl first made himself heard in the picturesque village of 
Waubaushene in 1887. Hut lie soon removed from the shores of 
Georgian Hay to Toronto, where he has since lived. After learning 
all he wanted to know at Huron Street public school he attended 
Harbord Street Collegiate Institute, from which lie matriculated in 
1905. His thirst for knowledge grew, and he registered in the 

concurrent course in Dentistry and Medicine. He never shone KB B 
fullback on the rugby team, but at learning can hold his own. He 
takes an active interest in many sports, and is a member of 
Omicron Chapter Xi I'si Phi. 



"Longings sublimi and aspirations high." 

Horn in Wentworth county, somewhat later than the early 
-ixties, he was sent to Waterdown School and received all the 
education that could be forced into him. Afterwards he received 
(l license, and for six long years dealt out knowledge to the youth 
ut' the Province. Insurance work in the Sun Life claimed three 
more years. At length the field of Dentistry appealed to him, and 
tie appeared witli his fees and Freshman kit at the doors of the 
R.C.D.S. Since then his time litis been spent to his own advantage 
and in the interests of '09. He litis been honored by being elected 
President of the Freshman class; Secretary of the Sophs, twice 
Councillor and then President of the Royal Dental Societv.

"He has a heart that never hardens, a temper that, never 
tires, and a touch that never hurts." 
Robertson Roy Walker was born in the village of Lloydtown, 
York county, October 3rd, 1885. Being the son of a Methodist 
minister his homes have been many, but his High .School education 
was obtained at Markham and at Meaford. While attending the 
latter he was greatly interested in athletics, and was successful in 
securing first place in many sports. After obtaining his matricula- 
tion at Meaford he spent a year of honest toil in a furniture factory 
there. This experience, in many ways, was of service to him when in 
October, '05, he entered the R.C.D.S. 



"The courtier's, scholar's, soldier's, eye, tongue, sword; 
The expectancy and rose of the fair state; 
The glass of fashion and the mould of form; 
The observed of all observers." 
Carl V. Wallace is a native of the "Land of Evangeline." 
Born in Hants county March 22nd, 1887, Carl has slowly but surely 
developed into that species of manhood of which the East so 
proudly boasts. He received his early instruction at the Halifax 
public school, and moving to Montreal in 1899 completed his High 
School education in Westmount Academy. He was found here 
among the "Freshies" in October '05, and during the four years 
has acquitted himself nobly. The At-Home and Provisional Com- 
mittees have received the benefit of his services as Treasurer. We 
all feel that Carl's future success in his profession is assured. 


"He needs no eulogy; he speaks for himself." 
Ivan was born in Kingsville on August 15th, 1882. As his 
father's business required repeated changes of residence Ivan is 
at home anywhere. At Leamington and Essex he proved an 
unsolved conundrum to the public school teachers. Guelph 
Collegiate and McMaster University contributed the necessary 
knowledge to matriculate. Winnipeg also welcomed him, and lastly, 
the windy city of Hamilton, where he has no doubt struck congenial 
soil. He has displayed great ability as an ardent rooter and 
Manager of the Dents Association Football Team of '07. Ivan will 
enliven any place that secures his services as a Dentist. 



"To travel hopefully is bitter than to arrive, 
And the true success is labor. ' ' 
Sidney has been a Torontonian since his birth, in February, 1885. 
He received his public school training in his native city, and on 
its completion entered a dental office, where he spent the five 
following years. Deciding to join the profession he matriculated 
into the R.C.D.S. in the fall of 1905. He is an arduous student, 
prudent and thorough in everything he undertakes. He has taken 
a prominent part in all the social functions during his college 
career, and was President of the Hya Yaka Club in his final year. 
He has also been, for the past four years, Manager of that 
prominent north end organization, known as the Aura Lee Club. 
We have no hesitation in phophesing that Sidney will continue to 
do credit to his Alma Mater and become a leader in the profession. 




The Parliament of the Undergraduates 

'Sir: I movi that the constitution be amended to 
read ." 

TRAINING after the unattained, or un- 
attainable, perfection, the college man 
is. or should be, an Idealist. He is. 
.therefore, zealous that all constitu- 
tions should be amended as often as 
possible. Such constant revisions re- 
quire the patience of the Danaides 
but demonstrate that the spirit of 
HI progress is still with us. The Parlia- 
wm tfk >f\ ment of the Undergraduates began 
V J^ VI ith a new constitution. 

Jflf >■ '' 1 ' s Wils a0 ^ ^ le ^ rst time; nor will 
it be the last. 

The work of the Parliament has 
been gratifying to authorities and undergraduates alike. 
The members have shown zeal with caution, and have tem- 
pered their radicalism with a sane conservatism. 

The Parliament has assumed the financial responsibility 
connected with the publication of Torontonensis, the man- 
agement of which has thus been transferred from the realm 
of private enterprise to the domain of public ownership. 
This experiment should demonstrate whether or not Social- 
ism is justified of her children. 

A Musical Board, which should supervise all approved 
musical clubs in the University, was organized. This Board 
admitted into its membership the Cniversity Orchestra, a 
society which owes its existence and marked success to the 
unflagging enthusiasm and indefatigable energy of its con- 
ductor. .Mr. II. (!. Meir. of Osgoode Hall. There was also 
established a .Male Chorus of several hundred voices, which, 

under the direction of .Mr. J. I). A. Tripp, promises to he 
a credit to the University. Mr. Tripp has offered his ser- 
vices gratuitously, expecting no remuneration until the 
Chorus shall have achieved a worthy reputation. This 
organization will he a notable factor in producing a homo- 
geneity out of the existing academic heterogeneity, thus 
reversing the Spencerian theory of evolution from an 
indefinite, incoherent chaos to a definite, coherent cosmos. 

The Parliament this year marketed the new University 
rug — an artistic creation in royal blue and white, with a 
shield design and meander border. It superintended the 
never-forgettable Students' Theatre Night. By an appeal 
to the student body for voluntary contributions, it succeeded 
in raising about $450 for a motorman of the Toronto 
Street Railway, who was injured in a street parade of 
undergraduates. It undertook to appoint the Toronto de- 
haters in the Inter-University Debating League next year, 
the University College Literary and Scientific Society hav- 
ing been duly convinced that the Parliament has acquired 
the gift of noble quibbling and is now able to select 
champions for a tourney of words. 

It doth not yet appear what the functions of the Parlia- 
ment may include, and. consequently, it is wise to refrain 
from prophecy. It is to be hoped that eventually all matters 
of common interest to the student body will come under 
the jurisdiction or supervision of this organization. 

There are some questions of immediate importance. The 
present method of electing officers is not faultless. Should 
not a committee he appointed to amend the constitution?

T is more or less of a bromidion that the best courses at 
the University arc those not on the curriculum. Of 
these, few are more important than that taken in the 
rooms of the Undergraduate Union. This institution is the 
one and only place where the ordinary student of not 
distinctly athletic proclivities may meet his fellows on an 
equal footing. It is here that he gauges the worth of his 
associates, chooses his friends and discusses the affairs of 
the University. Were it not for the Union, despite the best 
efforts of Student Parliaments, Literary Societies and 
everything else, one-half of the University of Toronto 
would never know what the other half was doing. The 
Union is the great talk exchange of the undergraduate 

So important a part do the nine rather dingy rooms in 
the old residential wing play in the life of the average 
undergraduate that the idea of existence without them 
appals. The Union, however, has not always been there. 
It is a thing of recent growth. The student of nine years 
ago knew it not. for it was not. January, 1901, saw its 
birth. W. K. Woodruff and H. .M. Wilcox, both of 'l)•_ , . 
broughl it into the world. 

The infant was Minerva-like, and started on its career 
with all the activity of an organization of years' standing. 
Billiard and pool tallies were installed; ('<>ll<<i< Topics was 


purchased, and a scheme was set on foot for the acquisition 
of the Varsity, then held by the Literary Society. 

This first year was not without its disasters. So great, 
however, was the momentum of the start that nothing could 
stop the progress of the Union, and Secretary Woodruff 
on the close of his term of office handed over the institution 
in a flourishing condition to his successor. R. B. Chadsey. 

When Secretary Chadsey took office at the commence- 
ment of the term of '02- '03, the initial enthusiasm had in 
large part died away. It had. however, been succeeded by 
a steady glow of enthusiasm on the part of the students, 
and under his guidance the institution continued to 
flourish. The membership was 264, and at the close of the 
term there was a small balance. It was at this time that 
the Varsity was purchased from the Literary Society and 
united with Collegi Topics. 

Under Secretary Baird, '03- '04. the infant institution 
was afflicted in a manner corresponding to the measles or 
whooping cough of the human youngster. Things went 
wrong. The membership dropped to 115, and when the 
term closed a deficit of $175 was announced. 

To Secretary M. Cameron, '04- '05, was accorded the task 
of nursing the invalid hack to strength again. His efforts 
were even more successful than could have been hoped, and 
at the close of Ins term the Union was at leasl convalescent. 
The deficit was only $100. 

It was Secretary G. Hewson, '05- '06, who finally put 
the Union on its feet again. The membership during his 
regime reached the until then unrecorded figure of 241; 
the Union Dance for the first time resulted in a handsome 
surplus, and at the close of the year, instead of a deficit, 
there was a small surplus. 

From that time on the Union has continued to flourish. 
Under Secretary McAlpine, '06- '07. the membership was 
302. and there was a surplus of $50. Under Secretary 
LePan. '07- '08, there were 280 members, and the surplus 
was raised to $85. This term, under Secretary Fields, there 

are 286 members and a surplus at least as large as that of 
last year is promised. 

As matters now stand, the Union can grow but little 
beyond its present size. There is no room for more than 
300 members. As an institution it is worthy of three times 
that number; and it would have them did it but have more 
space at its disposal. The Undergraduate Union has justi- 
fied its existence. The next step in its development will, 
it is hoped, be the granting of larger quarters by the 
University authorities. S. C. D. 


Literary and Scientific Society 

OACHED by Presidenl J. L. Boss, B.A., 
representing the Old Lit. Party, and 
managed by a Unionist Executive 
under the leadership of C. E. 
Campbell, the Literary Society of 
University College has enjoyed an- 
other successful year. The victor- 
ious slogan of the Unionists at the 
spring elections of '08 was •■New life in the Lit." That 
this new life lias been successfully infused may he ques- 
tioned by a few. but it is true, nevertheless, that the meet- 
ings this year have been brighter and better attended than 
ever before. This glory is of course not due to the Govern- 
ment alone, for .John Hodgson and his able Opposition, by 
their spirited fighting and general willingness to aid in all 
movements for the general good of the Society, have done 

much to make the meetings a success. 

An innovation which met with the marked approval of 
tlie members was the appointment of a Musical Director 
at the beginning of the year. In this position Mr. Men- 
has worked wonders. While before in the rendering of 

college songs but a mere murmur was audible, the same 
song's are now given with a zest and enthusiasm which does 
credit to the Society. A word only is necessary in regard 
to the various functions of the year. The feature of the 
Open Meeting, which was again a great success, was the 
inaugural address of President Ross, which will long be 
remembered by the students. The Mock Parliament this 
year was better and more largely attended than ever before. 
Stag Night furnished a most enjoyable evening to all those 
who were present, while the Arts' Dinner more than tilled 
the vacant spaces of the hungry freshmen. For the Dance 
the words of a senior bear eloquent testimony. "The very 
best dance of my college course." The new feature of the 
year must not be overlooked in the remembrance of the 
old favorites. Canadian Night, with its address on Can- 
adian politics and Canadian journalism, its Canadian music 
and ils Canadian poetry, was at once an original and highly 
entertaining meeting. 

Space forbids any further mention of the doings of the 
Lit. We can only hope that our successors in office may 
carry on the good work of the present year, and make the 
Lit. of 1910 even better than ever before.

Engineering Society 

-lUlflj-ft 't . 

II E University of Toronto Engineering 
Society, as the representative body of 
A. I the Faculty of Applied Science, has 

every student as a member. At present 
the membership is, ordinary 755, and 
life 850. making a "rand total of 1.605, 
every one of them keenly interested in 
the progress of what was formerly the 
old "School." 

This, the second year of the Society 
under its revised constitution, shows the 
excellent wisdom of the former Executive, who saw how 
the Society fell short of its purpose by not reaching all 
the students from its lack of sufficient specializing along 
the differenl lines of Engineering. The new system has 
been in operation long enough to develop any inherent 
weaknesses it might he supposed to have, but the most bitter 
opponents of the change will now agree that the Society 
is in a much more flourishing condition and in every way 
stronger than formerly, as is witnessed by the increasing 
attendance at the meetings and the greater number of 
student papers, both of which go to show the degree of 
interest taken by the undergraduates. The sectional meet- 
ings have now as Large gatherings as was customary at the 
general meetings under the old regime. 

It mighl well he said that this has been a banner year 
with the Society, for it has marked the largest gathering 
of graduates, under its auspices, ever known around the 
University. The Canadian Society of Civil Engineers was 

to hold their annual meeting in Toronto in January and 
the Engineering Society saw in this an opportunity of 
having a grand reunion, for many of the old graduates, as 
members of the Canadian Society of Civil Engineers, would 
be attending the convention. With this object in view they 
planned a big banquet, inviting the members of the Can- 
adian Society of Civil Engineers as their guests. Prepara- 
tions were made on a grand scale; invitations were sent to 
every graduate of the Faculty, and when the day of the 
banquet came it is the privilege of few to witness such a 
gathering — about 15(1 guests and over 250 graduates from 
all over Canada and the United States, who came to revive 
former associations and renew the old "School" spirit. 
besides about 4(H) undergraduates, making a total of over 
800. The occasion was made especially notable from the 
fact that it was the Twentieth Annual Dinner of the 
Engineering Society, and also from this being deemed by 
the graduates a fitting opportunity for showing their appre- 
ciation of long and able service by making presentations 
to Dean Galbraith and Dr. Ellis, this year marking the 
thirtieth anniversary of their connection with the Faculty. 
To the Dean was presented a silver service and to the 
Doctor a gold watch and fob. indicating in a small degree 
the high regard with which they are held by the graduates. 
Many of the graduates truly said they would look back 
Upon this occasion for years with many pleasant remi- 
niscences, as no doubt will all who had the privilege of 
part icipat ing.

lioyal Dental Society 

/k M<)X(J the studenl organizations of the Royal College 
of Dental Surgeons none stands out more prominently 
than tlic Royal Dental Society. 

At its meetings, which are held monthly during the 
college term, the besl men in the profession are secured to 
read papers and give demonstrations on the different 
branches of the work. Following the reading of the paper 
the students are given the privilege of discussing the 
author's methods and asking questions regarding those parts 
which they do not completely understand. 

Another important feature of the society is the fact 

that students are encouraged to write short papers on such 
subjects as they feel competent to deal with. These papers 
are also subject To the criticism of the students. 

Since the time of its founding: the R.D.S. meetings have 
always been a .great attraction, hut the present series has 
outshone all its predecessors in the interest and enthusiasm 
displayed by the students as a whole. 

In view of these facts, we feel that the committee are to 
he congratulated on the enterprise they have shown in rais- 
ing this society to the high degree of efficiency which it 
now possesses.

The Women's Literary Society of University College 

Two new factors entered into the work of the Society 
this year — the study of certain literature lying without the 
curriculum and the several years being made responsible 
for the different meetings. 

The freshman's initial appearance was at the Autumn 
Tea. Three evenings of the Christmas term devoted to the 
life and works of Win. .Morris aroused deep interest. There 
were two debates arranged, one with the Round Table Club 
and one inter-college, and in the former we were successful. 

The Easter term included a study of the Celtic move- 
ment and the presentation of "The Hour Glass" and "The 
Pot of Broth." by Yates. 

A gratifying feature of 1908-9 has been the interest in 
Evangelia Settlement and the enthusiasm of the freshman 

It will he with genuine regret that the class of 190!) 
realize that the privilege of taking a dominant place in the 
affairs of the "Lit." has passed from them to the women 
of 1910; but though the ties which, as undergraduates, 
hound them to it may he broken, there will ever remain 
pleasant memories of the hours, serious or gay. that have 
been passed under its influence.

Women's Literary Society of Victoria College 

THE Women's Literary Society of Victoria College is 
perhaps the most representative of all the societies, 
since it is here that all the women undergraduates meet on 
common ground, with the common purpose of attaining 
breadth of culture through intellectual and social inter- 
course with one another. 

The regular meetings of this society are held every 
second Wednesday of the college year and splendid practice 
is given in public speaking by the inter-year and inter- 
college debates, papers on literary and scientific subjects 
and especially the oration contest, which is held sometime 

in January. The social development, too, is furthered by 
an annual reception given to the students at the beginning 
of the fall term, and a tea given to the graduating class in 
the spring. 

Looking back over the past year we realize that it has 
been one of growth and advancement in the members and 
interest of the Women's Literary Society, and let us hope 
for the years to come that there will be a continued im- 
provement and increasing zeal in endeavoring to realize 
the society's ideal — an all-round college woman.

X giving its annual report of Tin Varsity, Torontonensis 
may this year include all things in the significant word 
Progress. Last year's report relates that The Varsity 
served two masters. In an endeavor to combine the literary 
idea with the journalistic one. two unwelcome conditions 
resulted — stale news, and sacrifice of literary effort. 

The impossibility of combining these contrary ideas in 
one weekly publication was recognized by last year's staff, 
and, as a consequence, we have this year the dawning of 
a new journalistic regime. The weekly Varsity of old days 
has been divided. Its journalistic self has become the 
semi-weekly four-page newspaper. Its literary self is 
abroad in the guise of a monthly magazine — The University 

The change came about in Ibis wise. Last summer when 
the work of soliciting advertising began it was the inten- 
tion of the Undergraduate Union to publish under the 
name of Tin Varsity two undergraduate publications, one 
a semi-weekly newspaper, the other a monthly magazine. 
Considerable advertising was in fact subscribed for this 
purpose, when the Alumni Association, whose organ is The 
University Monthly, proposed an amalgamation of The 
Varsity and Tin University Monthly. Several distind 
advantages were apparent. A desirable bond between 
undergraduate and graduate classes of the University 
Alumni mighl thus be formed; and the presence of two 
instead of three publications in the advertising field would 
be to the advantage of all parties concerned. These con- 

siderations decided the course; and an amalgamation was 
later concluded. The two publications have become insepar- 
able under the single subscription price of one dollar. 
Every undergraduate and graduate is thereby kept in 
similar contact with his Alma Mater. 

Such is the breadth of the present arrangement, so 
boundless are its opportunities, that we cannot bu1 prophesy 
unqualified success. The value of a newspaper in a large 
University is inestimable, it provides the necessary Link 
between numerous faculties, separated in all but allegiance to 
a common name, it acts as a mirror in which students and 
faculty may see themselves and each other. It reveals to 
the business world in a proper light the multifarious activi- 
ties. of University life. The present four-page newspaper 
has made a beginning towards these giant goals. Kadi 
year should see something more accomplished. The next 
step will probably be to a semi-weekly newspaper of larger 
size. After that the transition to a daily will not be fat- 

Such are the hopes of the present. Inharmonious 
duality has been freed to develop into co-operative harmony. 
Both ideas, journalistic and literary, are capable of magni- 
ficent growth. They represent two great phases which are 
not competitive, and which may in lime he combined. Both 
admit of literary treatment. When our newspapers shall 
become marvels of style as well as of lucidity, then may we 
welcome the millenium.

Acta Victorians 

HE vital dates of Ada's early his- 
tory are lost in the mazes of 
antiquity, for tradition has it that 
long before it was given material 
form the spirit of a college paper 
existed, and that the acta pads bel- 
lique were duly recorded and pre- 
served for posterity in a kind of 
written chronicle. Be that as it 
may. the present year sees the completion of the thirty- 
second volume since Acta made its inaugural bow into the 
world of college journalism. 

During this time the history of Acta lias been, like that 
of Victoria, one of continued development. In its present 
form as a magazine, issued monthly throughout the aca- 
demic year, it may fairly claim to be the most representative 
institution of "Old Vic." All the various aspects of college 
life, literary and athletic, scientific and religious, are repre- 
sented between its covers. Another department deals with 
the events of local interest, together with the deeds — and 
misdeeds of the students, while the editorial pages are 
concerned with the interests of the college as a whole. In 
this way. by forming a bond of union between graduates 
and undergraduates, the services which Acta has rendered 
towards the formation of that indefinable, but by no means 

intangible, something which we call esprit dc corps have 
been of incalculable value. 

During the past it has been the aim of its editors to 
make Acta representative not only of Victoria College but 
of the best in Canadian literature. Presumptive as this aim 
may seem to a superficial observer, the files of Acta during 
the past bear abundant witness to the claim that this 
policy has been attended with great success. Among its 
contributors the magazine has numbered the names of the 
most prominent Canadians in literature, in art. in science, 
and in public life. That it has been peculiarly fortunate 
in the personnel of its successive boards of management is 
seen when one looks at the high positions of trust to which 
many of its ex-editors and ex-business managers have after- 
wards attained. At present there seem to be certain forces 
at work that indicate important modifications in the tradi- 
tional policy. As the development of the ideal of "the 
greater" University of Toronto is realized. Ac la must 
become more and more exclusively a college paper. Although 
this may mean in some respect an abandonment of old 
ideals, we are not sure but that the taking up of new 
may ultimately prove advantageous. In any event we may 
be sure that Acta will ever continue to stand for the same 
high ideals, and that it will long retain the proud position 
which it now holds in the field of college journalism.

The Trinity University Keview 

THE beginning of college journalism in Trinity dates 
from the publication of the first copy of Rouge et Noir 
in the month of January, 1880. At first a private enter- 
prise, its intrinsic merit speedily won for it the recognition 
and support of the student body, by whom it was formally 
adopted after its initial appearance. From a quarterly 
it developed into a monthly magazine, and after a chequered 
career extending over eight years its title was changed 
from Rouge et Noir to The Trinity University Review. 
While the maintenance of its existence has not always been 
unattended with serious difficulties. The Review has won 
for itself long since a secure place among the institutions 

of Trinity. In addition to the opportunity which it offers 
to those who desire to cultivate the art of writing, it sup- 
plies the need, which is felt increasingly with the growth 
of a residential college, of some medium through which the 
students may voice their sentiments upon the many ques- 
tions which vitally concern their interests. 

The earlier volumes of The Review, numbering among 
their contributors many who, like Archibald Lampman, 
afterwards won fame in the world of literature, set a high 
standard which it has been the endeavour of succeeding 
generations to maintain.

Applied Science 

PTEB its firsl year of existence, the new 

monthly, Applied Science, has shown that it 

fills a much-felt want among the publications 

of the University. For many years the 

transactions of the Engineering Society of 

the School of Practical Science have appeared 

in single volume form at the end of each 

academic year. Last year it was decided after much 

deliberation to attempt a monthly issue of the Transactions. 

and accordingly Applied Scienct was founded. 

This journal affords a means of preserving undergradu- 
ate and graduate contributions to Engineering literature. 
The old Transactions of the Society, while serving their 
purpose in many ways, nevertheless had serious defects. 
Being issued only once a year it was impossible to keep a 
definite connection between the graduate and the under- 
graduate bodies. Then. too. the Transactions failed to 
receive adequate recognition from the leading Engineering 

The monthly is financed by the Engineering Society, 
partly paying for itself from the advertising it contains 
and partly from the subscriptions. At the present time, 
however, it is being run under a deficit, which the Society 
carries. The editorial work is done by the permanent 
secretary, assisted by the President and Vice-Presidents of 

the Engineering Society, associated with four of the junior 
members of the Faculty. 

The magazine falls into tour sections, one section being 
given to each of the three divisions of the Engineering 
Society, namely. Civil and Architects. Mechanicals and 
Electricals. Chemicals and .Miners, and the remaining sec- 
tion being devoted to editorials and a review of what the 
graduates are doing. 

With this monthly a means of drawing and holding 
graduate sentiment is at hand, which in the coming few 
years should do much towards binding together the Alumni 
of the Applied Science Faculty. The papers published arc 
of direct interest to all graduates, taking on an additional 
interest from the fact that they are nearly all written by 
School men. Many of the papers so far published have 
been copied by Engineering periodicals throughout the 
United States and Canada. Therefore. Applied Scienct 
should, and is. adding to the prestige of the Faculty and 
the University throughout the Engineering and academic 

In making any reference to this monthly it is only fair 
to mention the name of one man who has been instrumental 
in putting it on a solid and successful working basis. Mr. 
K. A. MacKenzie. the present Editor-in-Chief, has been in 
the main responsible for the success id' this venture.

UBLISHED by the students of the R.C.D.S.. Hya Yaka is 
entirely financed and controlled by this body. The Editor. 
Business Manager, Secretary and Treasurer are elected

It exists to set forth the various phases of student life ; 
the relation of the students to the College, to the Faculty, 
to the Board, to the public and to each other. The ' ' locals, 
of course, must ever prove attractive, but the primary object 
of the paper is not to call attention to the eccentricities 
of the seniors, the popularity of the juniors, the marvellous 
wisdom of the sophomores, or the crudities and excrescences 
of the freshmen. Its great mission is to develop the latent 
talent and to improve the conditions of the entire student

Political Science Club 

THIS year the Executive of the Political Science Club 
attempted an innovation in the form of dinners, on 
the same principle as those held by the Canadian Club. The 
first of these dinners was held in the Y.M.C.A. Building, 
on November 18th. the guest of honor being Professor Adam 
Shortt, Chairman of the Civil Service Commission at 
Ottawa. Prof. Shortt spoke on the "Practical Operation 
of the Lemieux Act" and his address was listened to with 
great interest by about one hundred members of the Political 
Science Course. The second address of the season was 
delivered by Dr. James Bonar. Comptroller of the Royal 
Mint, Ottawa, and author of several famous books on 

Political Philosophy. He spoke on "The World — One 
City." instilling into the minds of his audience the value 
of cosmopolitanism and prophesying its future develop- 
ment. After Christmas it is planned to receive severaL 
other prominent economists, but whether the idea of holding 
dinners will be kept up or not has not yet been decided. 

The excursions of the Clnb this year have been well 
attended. On October 29th about one hundred members 
went out to the Toronto Carpet Works and went over care- 
fully their interesting processes of manufacture. In the 
Easter term the Diamond Glass Works was visited, a never- 
to-be-forgotten occasion.

THE S P S Camera Club was organized in the year 
19 06'ehiefly due to the efforts of Mr. G. R. Anderson. 
M.A.. Lecturer in Physics, and W. C. Blackwood, '06. 

The ime ob 3 ec1 of the Club is to develop an interest 
in amateur photography, so that, when the engineer has 
a eed of photographs, he may know how to handle the 
requisite articles himself, and not require the services ot a 
professional photographer. 

The meetings are held only twice monthly, thus allow- 
ing the men to read up a certain subject that is to be taken 
up at the following meeting. The time of meeting is 

8 p.m. and hence the Club is able to procure the best 
outside men to deliver suitable addresses. 

In connection with the Club there is an enlarging 
camera and a dark-room, loaned by the faculty, the chemical 
supplies being provided by the Club. 

It is intended to have an exhibition of pictures at the 
end of the year and suitable prizes will he awarded to the 
members of the Club who have the best results. 

The interest in the Club has kept up splendidly and 
the membership promises to exceed that of other years, thus 
showing that a knowledge of the camera is useful both for 
the engineer and the man of artistic taste.

S. P. S. Electrical Club 

\^ Club is one of the 
youngesl studenl organiza- 
tions in conned ion with the 
Faculty of Applied Science. 
During the short space of 
three years the venture has 
proven a success and at 
present the Club holds a 
place of prominence among 
student bodies. This is due 
largely to the individual and personal interest taken in it 
by each one of its members. 

Its membership is limited, in the main, to third and 
fourth year mechanical and electrical students and its 
objects are to advance the engineering education of its 
members and to provide opportunities for development in 
public speaking. To accomplish these ends, meetings are 
held on alternate Thursday nights at which papers on 
engineering subjects are read, being, for the most part, 
prepared by the members. Occasionally professional men 
are secured to present some subject of special interest. 
Open discussion always follows these papers, in which 
everyone is at liberty to participate. Also. Saturday morn- 
ing visits are paid to the various manufacturing plants. 
power-houses, etc.. throughout the city and vicinity, whereby 
the student comes in contact with the practical cwd of 

The student who takes advantage of the opportunities 
afforded by this Club is benefited in various ways. If he 
gives a paper, he gains a thorough knowledge of some 
particular branch or subject that before he may not have 
properly understood. In taking part in the discussions 
he becomes accustomed to speaking in public, he develops 
the faculty of accurate and rapid thinking, and this under 
the favorable condition of speaking- to his fellow students. 
The limited membership of the Club gives the amateur 
speaker a degree of confidence not obtainable in larger 
societies. If he accompanies the excursions he has the 
opportunity of seing the practical application of what might 
have been only a theoretical problem, as well as having the 
chance of meeting with successful professional men. 

The meetings have been largely attended, indicating the 
class of papers presented, while the excursions seem to hold 
a place of importance in the minds of the members. 

Engineering companies upon being approached are eager 
to come in touch with Club, and are willing to send any 
bulletins specified, so that a member may procure terse 
information on any particular subject in which he is 

In short, the S. P. S. Electrical Club stands for a liberal 
engineering education.

Applied Science Debating Club 

HAT was then termed the S. P. S. 
Literary and Debating Club was organ- 
ized in 1905, under the auspices of the 
School Y.M.C.A. Its early supporters 
were necessarily men of earnest purpose 
who felt the importance of supplying in 
some way the tremendous need in the 
School life of a source of development of the oratorical as 
well as grammatical powers of the men. It followed that the 
organization differed somewhal essentially from the type 
of society that under other conditions might have nourished. 
The object sought after from the first was "the greatest 
benefit to the greatest number," and, therefore, the Society 
was tin-own open to every man in the School. 

It was conceded that the main functions of the Society 
were to develop freedom of thought while on one's feet, to 
train the men in the customs and rules of debating and 
speaking, and to help the man to acquire that self-poise 
in greater or less degree which is so necessary in one who 
appears in any way before the public. It was. therefore, 
decided that the meetings would be largely of an impromptu 
nature; also, that in so far as possible each man present 
should have an opportunity of addressing the meeting. 
And, furthermore, it became essential to have present at 
each meeting a competent critic, whose function it would 
be to point out weaknesses and mistakes, and to offer 
suggestions for the future development. 

The Society has had its own little history in the past. 
At limes the tide of popularity ran strong. Throughout 
the session of "0(i-<)7 strong meetings were held of an 
extremely valuable character. A number of the debaters 
of those days hold responsible positions on the Faculty and 
elsewhere today; others, the leaders of to-day, were glad 
in those days of the opportunity to learil from them. Espe- 

cially uoticeable at the spring sessions are the intending 
candidates for Society representative honors in the annual 
elections. More than one has stood or fallen by the impres- 
sion made in his efforts on the floor. While at times interest 
has somewhat waned, the inherent value of the Debating 
Club has been its own safeguard, and this year it seems as 
if the tide has reached the flood. As never before the men 
are awake to a realization of the need and of the partial 
response of the Club. In fact, the problem is to make the 
old syslem conform to the new condition of affairs. It is 
a problem that is pressing more and more for an early 

Meanwhile, all honor to the old debating ground! 
Vindictive spirit there has never been: absolute play is 
there for all. and it has turned out of the crude product, 
not perhaps the most finished orator, but men of quiet, 
logical, persuasive power, with self-control and self-command 
to strengthen them in the coming battle of life. Long may 
i1 live and prosper to serve the coming generations of 
School men. 


The Classical Association of University College 

THIS year the President of the University, Dr. Abbott of 
the Department of Philosophy, and Dr. Pakenham of 
the Faculty of Education, have been welcomed as guests of 
the Society. On its social side, the Association has reverted 
(and. as the result seems to show, wisely) to evening 
meeting's, held on alternate Wednesdays, in the Faculty 
Union or in private houses. During the past year papers 
and addresses have been given by the following: Principal 
Hntton, on Some Reasons for Classical Study ; Mr. G. 0. 
Smith, on the Roman Occupation of Britain ; Mr. S. M. 

Scott and Mr. D. G. Hanna, on Ancient and Modern Con- 
ceptions of History ; Prof. A. H. Abbott, on Ancient Sages 
and Modern Thought; Mr. W. H. Tackaberry, on Some 
Sketches from Lucian; Miss M. E. Quinn, on the Reign of 
Augustus; Prof. Pakenham, on Erasnms the Humanist;

"'HE club is now settled in life. But its existence has 
* become by no means humdrum, or monotonous. This 
year several innovations have been successfully carried out. 
A new graphophone has been installed and has added 
immensely to the attractiveness of the meetings. The club 
has also issued a song book containing some of the best old 

and modern French songs. Mr. Griffith was kind enough 
to place his room at the disposal of the society and in doing 
so made the Wednesday "soirees" the success which they 
are. A great many new members have joined, bringing the 
total number to nearly thirty, most of whom can speak good 
broken English.

AS for several years past, Samstagabend has been en- 
livened this year by the meetings of the T. C. D. K. K. 
Owing to the increase in the members of the club it was 
found impossible to feed the multitude in its old quarters; 
accordingly the Dons' common room bars been the scene of 

this year's meetings. "Kraven," Kaffee, Klavier and 
Klatsch. varied with an occasional Wienerfest, have all 
combined to render the German Club a delightfully in- 
formal society. The annual dinner was as usual a great 
success and proved a most enjoyable evening. 


Trinity College Glee Club 

HE Glee Club this year has fully 
realized the expectations of the most 
sanguine of its members. A great 
many of the present members have 
been singing with the elub for sev- 
eral years, and, having profited by 
Mr. Francis Coomb's able instruc- 
tion, are now more or less trained 
singers. The annual concert was 
given in the Convocation Hall, on 
February the 27th. With the grac- 
ious assistance of Miss Hope Morgan 
and of Mrs. Neville Woodcock, and Mr. Oscar F. Taylor, the 
concert was a complete success. Since the club has been on 
a firm financial and technical footing, short jaunts to neigh- 
boring towns have been a pleasant feature of the year's 
programme. We made an auspicious beginning last year, 
and propose to continue the enjoyable custom. 

Mr. Coombs has again been chosen as conductor, and, as 
it is he who has worked the club up to its present state of 

efficiency, we arc certain that his taste and energy will 
maintain the high standard which he has set up. The con- 
ceit this season will be held under his direction, on the 18th 
of February, 1909, and gives promise of being even more 
successful than that of last year. The officers of the elub 
are as follows:

THIS season there were two important changes in the 
membership of the League. Knox College dropped 
out, the reason being assigned that they thought debating 
was monopolizing too much lime for the benefit derived; 
on the other hand. Ontario Agricultural College, though at 
first hesitant, finally entered a team in the League. 

In the first round. Trinity College drew the live, and in 
the other debates. Wycliffe won against Osgoode, McMaster

General Athletics at Varsity 

|HE year 1907-8 was the largest year in the 
history of University athletics. Every de- 
partment of spoil was encouraged, with 
the result that our teams were uniformly 
successful, losing but two out of ten Inter- 
collegiate championships. 

Our athletics are broadening in a 
measure that would astonish University 
men of a few years ago. 

Our material is such now that the main idea is not 
simply to develop University senior teams that can defeat 
the other university teams, but to have teams to take part 
in contests with other than University teams. This idea 
is twofold: 1st. It shows the standing or calibre of Uni- 
versity sport in comparison with other leagues in regard 
to quality and sportsmanship; 2nd. it enables a great many 
more students to engage in these sports, because there are 
more teams representing the University and more "scrub" 
teams required to give them the necessary practice. 

Already we have teams entered in leagues ami contests 
other than Inter-collegiate in association football, basketball, 
track athletics and swimming. Also, the policy of the 
Athletic Directorate now is to encourage students who are 
not "top notchers" to engage in athletics. In former years 
the student must play for Varsity or not at all. Now. 
owing to the mass of material, if the Executive of the 
rugby, hockey or other club find thai they have all the 
material necessary, then permits are granted to students 
to play I'm- other than University teams. Thus, students 
who are not good enough for the University teams are not 
prevented from playing the game, and are enabled to 
derive the physical benefits which they require perhaps 
Of course, the ideal results cannot be obtained until 
more than ihe men who have made the University teams. 

we have every student taking exercise. This seems at first 
sight like a difficult problem, but it has been solved in 
universities as large as our own. The idea is the examina- 
tion of ever}* student, and the directing of the particular 
form of exercise necessary, whether indoors or not. 

Under these conditions a man can elect the form of 
athletics in which he wishes to engage, attaining thereby 
the full degree of recreation, which is a most important 
therapeutic agent. 

To summarize, the object of all the athletic effort at 
the University is : 

1. The encouragement of some form of regular exercise 
for every student to keep him in the best physical condition 
during his undergraduate years. 

2. The strengthening physically of those students who 
would be handicapped during undergraduate years and 
later in life by physical deficiency. 

3. The directing of suitable exercise for the strong, robust 
students who would, if left to themselves, take too much 
exercise or none at all. 

4. The encouragement of athletic competitive games. 
where the student must match his skill, strength, unselfish- 
ness and control of temper against his fellow student, and 
the students of other universities. 

5. The physical and medical examination of all students 
before they engage in any form of athletics, rendering 
athletics safe. 

6. The prescription of exercise for the student below 
the normal type. 

7. The teaching of swimming and life-saving, so that 
the student may help to preserve his own life and the lives 
of others.

The Gymnasium. 


THE season of 1908 will go down in record, both 
financially and otherwise, as the best that Varsity 
lias ever experienced. For the first time in her rugby 
history Varsity has won all three championships, senior, in- 
termediate and junior. It would have been a bold man who 
would have predicted a championship team for the seniors 
in the early October days, when the first practices were 
held. The team of 1!)<>7 were none too strong, and 
of this we were minus two half-backs and several strong 
wings. The earlier practices were disheartening, but a 
crushing defeat of McGill on our home grounds put heart 
into the team. The defeat by Queen's in Kingston and 
the sad death of Bob. Cassels. easl a gloom over the team, 
lint three comparatively easy wins, two from Ottawa 
College and one from McGill, prepared the team for the 
crucial Queen's game. The student body awakened to the 
fad that they had a team to cheer for, and before a tre- 

mendous crowd, and in a blinding snow storm, the Presby- 
terians were soundly thrashed by a score of 20 — 8. This 
necessitated a play-off in Ottawa, and on an icy field 
Queen's were again beaten by 14 — 0. The great game, on 
Nov. 28th. against the famous Hamilton Tigers, in Rosedale. 
is too fresh in the mind of everyone to need a detailed 
account. Before the greatest and most enthusiastic crowd 
in Canada's football history youth and speed nearly turned 
the trick on weight and experience, and in the face of a 
narrow defeat by 21 — 17. a deep impression of respect 
was left on everyone for the boys. who. swept off their feet 
and disorganized by the first rush of the veterans, came 
hack and nearly won a game already lost. 

The Intermediates had a successful season. They were 
narrowly defeated by R.M.C. in the final Inter-collegiate 
game, hut carried off the championship. For the loss of 
the Canadian championship lack of training is responsible, 
for after outplaying Intermediate Tigers for the first three- 
quarters they were overwhelmed in the final stage of the 
game. Varsity 111. won the Junior C.I.R.F.U., after sus- 
taining a crushing defeat by McMaster in their first game, 
and would undoubtedly have given a good account of them- 
selves in the Canadian championship had they not long 
been out of training by the time the game was ordered to 
he played. With the seniors losing but two men. and the 
intermediates and juniors practically intact, the season of 
!!)(>!) ought to eclipse even the magnificent one just pas-*, >d 
Too much praise cannot be given to Mr. II. C. Griffith for 
his unselfish and systematic coaching, to "Moon" Lee for 
his splendid handling of the team, and to "Ginnis" Johnson 
for his management. May next year's season see not only 
three I.-C.R.F.U. championships at Varsity, hut three 
C.T.R.F.U. banners as well!

T^UK Varsity Hockey Team of 1907-08 was without 
* doubt the most brilliant aggregation of amateurs 
Canada lias known. It so happened that the best players 
from several renowned junior clubs entered Varsity about 
the same date, and their experience, coupled with playing 
ability of the highest order, enabled them to outclass all 
opponents. Their victories were so easily won that they had 
little opportunity to show their true form. In the match 
with Queen's at Kingston the home team made them extend 
themselves for twenty minutes, hut after that the result 
was never in doubt.

the speediest of the team, and never tired. While he did 
not fit in the combination as well as some of the others, his 
checking hack was wonderful, and it can truthfully he said 
that he ranked with the very best. 

"Tony" Evans. U.C.C., developed wonderfully during 
the season and became invaluable, fitting into the com- 
bination and playing a most useful game. 

Herb. Clarke. Beechgrove-Frontenacs. was admittedly 
the most hrilliant member of Varsity, and occupied a unique 
position as centre. Very few scores were made without his

'' NE of the most glorious campaigns 
in the annals of University of 
Toronto athletics was that carried 
on last summer by the Lacrosse 
Team. After a tour, in the course 
of which it went up against the 
strongest amateur aggregations in 
the States, this body returned to 
Toronto bearing the proud title of 
Amateur Lacrosse Champions of America. 

The first game was played in Baltimore, against the 
Johns Hopkins Team, on Saturday. .May 23rd. It was five 
years since Toronto had gone so far south as Maryland, 
and the record of Hopkins for eleven successive victories. 
including the winning of the college championship, pro- 
mised to make it interesting for the Canadians. 

The game resulted in favor of Varsity by a score of 
nine to six. lint only after a gruelling contest in which most 
of the hardship was borne by the travel-worn and unacclima- 
tised visitors. It may he understood under what disadvan- 
tages the Toronto learn played, when the number of goals 
scored againsl it in all the remaining games did not reach 
that made by -Johns Hopkins on the first day. 

The team next swooped upon Washington, where, on 
Tuesday. .May 26th, it met the Mount Washington twelve. 
The game resulted in an easy victory I'm' Toronto by a 
sci, it of eighl goals to two. 

Strathmore was the next victim, the game on Wednesday 
afternoon being overwhelmingly in favor of the visiting 
players, the score being eleven to one. In the evening an 
inter-fraternity smoker was held in one of the chapter 

The next morning the team took the trail for Brooklyn, 
where on Saturday. May 24th. it succeeded in wresting the 
victory from the Crescents. 

From an athletic standpoint the narrow victory of 
Varsity over their old-time rivals on Saturday. May 30th, 
was the most pleasing event of the tour. The game was 
not as successful as in former years, from the spectators" 
point of view, because of the interference of rain during 
almost all the play. But the closeness of the contest, which 
resulted in a score of three goals to two. mitigated the dis- 
comfort caused by the unfavorable weather. 

The march was next directed upon Boston, where an 
encounter with the Harvard Team was scheduled. The 
Crimson champions, however, failed to take the field, de- 
fault ing to Toronto. 

Thereupon the Enter-collegiate and. incidentally, the 
Amateur Lacrosse Champions of America, with a record of 
five victories and no defeats, straightway sought their berths 
and returned to Canada, stepping off at Toronto, as they 
had done at Baltimore, crippled and sore after nineteen 
hours on the road.

TIIK present year marks an epoch in the progress of 
soccer football in the field of University athletics. 
Association football, though perhaps not the most popular 
from a spectacular point of view, has by far the largest 
membership. This year a team was entered in the City 
League and the fact that the Inter-Collegiate Team was 
iml weakened by this new demand for senior players shows 
the strength of association football in the University. 

In the [nter-Faculty Series six teams were entered— 
S.P.S., Denis. Meds, Arts. City Teachers and McMaster. 
This is the firsl year in which the last two teams have been 
represented and the close game between City Teachers and 
Arts score. 1-0— shows that they will be a factor to be 
reckoned wit h in the future. Arts succeeded in snatching 
the cup from S.P.S. in a play-off game— score, 1-0. 

In the Intermediate Series nine teams w^vr entered. 
The championship was won by Knox, composed of stars 

of the Arts teams of the last three years. Though they 
should perhaps have been entered in the Senior Series the 
close final game with Dents shows the strength of the 
Intermediate teams. 

In the Inter-collegiate Series Varsity again succeeded 
in winning the championship. McGill and Queen's entered 
much stronger teams than in former years. In a home 
and home series for the championship of Ontario Varsity 
defeated All Saints by total score of 6-4. In the City 
League Series Varsity Intermediates were rnnners-np. 
being defeated in final game by All Saints A.

The Gymnasium Club 

BOUGH hampered by the 
deficiencies and inade- 
quacies of OTir present 
gymnasium building, yet 
during the past year the 
Gymnasium Club has 
made marked progress. 
The general increase of 
interest in the work of 
the gymnasium manifests 
itself in the growing 
popularity of the classes. 
The primary aim of these 
classes is not— as lias been supposed — to turn out crack 
gymnasts, but rather to reach and to benefit the average 
college man in his development, and the work is of such a 
nature as 1o debar no one from taking part in it. For those 
who have already attained some degree of proficiency in 
apparatus work, there is the Senior Class under the able 
leadership of Professor Williams. The Gymnasium Club 
owes much to "Prof." for his untiring efforts in every 
phase of its work, whilst the efficiency of his training is 
pronouncedly exemplified in the work of our two Olympic 
representatives, .Messrs. Keith and Elliott. No less is the 
Club indebted to Dr. Barton, who, as general supervisor 

of the gymnasium, has done much to arouse and stimulate 
the enthusiasm of the students by his own personal interest 
in their work. 

The Annual Assault-at-Arms has come to he a feature 
of college athletics. This year it took place in the last 
week of February and must be pronounced as in every way 
an unprecedented success. 

It is to be hoped that before long our University may 
possess a gymnasium building which in accommodation and 
equipment may be more adequate to the needs of our 
student body.

Gymnasium Club. 



TIIK season of 1908 has witnessed some remarkable 
developments in the history of the Tennis Club. 
The courts, which in the past have usually been 
deserted until the mouth of September, were constantly in 
use during the fine afternoons in July and August. In fact. 
it is scarcely exaggerating to say that in the last two years 
tennis has risen to be one of the most popular sports of the 
season, from the standpoint of the spectator as well as of 
the player. 

Although Varsity's two teams in the Senior and Inter- 
mediate City League w^-vc not very successful, it must be 
remembered thai the League matches were played in June 
and July, at a time when several of the strongest college 
players were out of the city. 

With the return of the men in September, however, a 
strong senior team was formed. This team went through 
the rest of the season without a defeat, playing a tie match 
againsl a team from the Royal Military College in Septem- 
ber, and defeating Royal .Military College and Queen's 

University in Kingston on Friday and Saturday. October 
Kith and 17th. 

As a result of the trip to Kingston an [nter-collegiate 
Tennis Union, composed of Queen's. R. M. C. and Varsity, 
has been formed, and McGill and Laval are expected to 
join it in the near future. 

The annual tournament of the club was held on the 
courts commencing Saturday, October :i. A record entry 
was played off and revealed the fact that there is plenty 
of promising material in sighl for a couple of good teams 
next year. 

In the ladies' events seme of the best players in Ontario 
were entered and Miss Moves was deservedly very success- 
ful in the open events. A new feature was the opening of 
a ladies' undergraduate championship, which revealed the 
fact that there are many excellent players among the women 
of the University, chief among whom may be mentioned 
Miss Pairbairn and Miss Mel aren. Among the men the 
playing of F. <i. McEachren and \V. de C. O'Grady was 
alwavs brilliant. 

44 The Power Commission " 

HE Power Commission," as the Executive of 
the Rugby Club is commonly termed, consists 
of H. C. Griffith. Coach; Allan Brown. Presi- 
dent ; R. Y. Cory. Secretary, and W. J. 
Johnston. Manager. 
Harry Griffith was educated at Trinity, and becoming 
a master at Bishop Ridley College he began coaching with 
much success. As a coach he stands par excellence, being 
admitted by all as the best in Canada, and as an all-around 
and good clean sport he has no superior. The credit of 
the team's showing is solely due to his unabating efforts. 
Allan Brown as President showed his executive ability 
and did much towards its success. To "Bob." Corv is due 

the financial success of the club this year, Bob's ability 
and financial schemes being recognized by all who came in 
contact with him, especially by the Executive of the 
Hamilton Rugby Club, who were delighted with the way 
in which the Power Commission handled the big game at 
Rosedale. though reports from Queen 's Hall seem quite con- 
tradictory to this fact. 

"Ginnis" .Johnston as Manager was always on the spot 
with his happy smile, looking after the players or sitting 
in the chambers of the "Commission." 

As a Commission it carried on its work faithfully, 
developing out of raw material a good team, which should 
have no trouble in annexing the championship again in 1909.

ill K University of Toronto 
Rifle Association continues to 
flourish like the »reen bay tree. 
During this past year, which 
is the seventh of its existence, 
the membership has grown to 
four hundred, and the actual 
attendance at the Ranges 
has doubled — a record which 
places the Association almost 
at the head of all the Rifle 
Associations of the Dominion. As usual, practices have 
been held every afternoon and Saturday mornings from 
the o] teiiing of the fall term till about the middle of 
November. Work al the Ranges has been made more satis- 
factory by the fitting up of a stack-room for the rifles there 
and by increased facilities for handling both rifles and 
ammunition. This year the Association received a supply 
of new Ross rifles, with the latest improved sights, and the 
season's experience has proved this new Canadian arm 
an excellent one. An i in port an t event in the history of 
University rifle-shooting was the institution this year of 
a competition among all the Canadian University Rifle 
Associations. This was done by the Dominion Rifle Associa- 
tion, who have offered a magnificent silver trophy for annual 
competition. All the members of each Association shoot 

on a given day on their own ranges, and the trophy goes 
to the University making the best total with its first eight 
men. Each of the eight men gaining a place receives for 
his own possession a beautiful silver miniature of the 
trophy. This year only Varsity and McGill competed. 
Varsity winning by 688 points to 647. The eight men who 
contributed to the victory were: R. J. Vance (Dent.), 90 
A. B. Mitchell (S.P.S.). 89; J. G. Barron (S.P.S.), 89 
F. A. Blattsford (Dent.), 86; R. M. McFarlane (Dent. . 84 
W. S. Steele (S.P.S.), 84; C. B. Hamilton (S.P.S.), 83 
J. B. Keppy (S.P.S.), 8:5. The O.R.A. Silver Medal for 
best individual aggregate went to R. M. Murray with 
92 points. The De Lury Shield was won by the Dental 
College, and the Undergraduates defeated the Faculty by 
a narrow margin.

IX tlic fall of 1907, through the efforts of Mr. R. G. L. 
" Harstone, the University of Toronto Curling Club was 
organized with ;i membership of thirty-five. 

fee privileges were secured from the Prospect Park 
Curling Club, and that Club invited the University Club to 
participate jointly with them in the rink competitions, 
three pair stone matches, and points' game, which invita- 
tion was kindly accepted. 

P. (J. L. Harstone won the President 's gold medal in the 
three pair stone match in the senior competition and \V. M. 
( Jarlyle won the President's gold medal in the three pair stone 
match in the junior competition, and A. 1). LePan was 
successful in winning third place in the points' game. 

Two rinks skipped by Messrs. Harstone and ( urran were 
entered in the Canada Life Trophy competition and the\ 
were successful in defeating strong rinks in the first, second 
and third rounds, hut they were gently laid aside themselves 
in the fourth round. 

In the Ontario Tankard Competition .Messrs. Harstone 
and < 'urran were again the skips. In the preliminary round 

they were successful in defeating their opponents, hut in 
the first round they were defeated by the Lindsay Club by 
three shots. The Lindsay Club eventually won the much- 
coveted Tankard. 

During the season friendly matches were played with 
other clubs, one of the most enjoyable being a visit to the 
Brampton Club, where we were handily beaten ami after- 
wards enjoyahly entertained. The season was completed 
by the Presidenl vs. Vice-President match | four rinks 
aside), which, after a good afternoon's sport, was won by 
the President's side. Adjournment was made to the St. 
Charles Cafe, where dinner was served. Honorary Presi- 
dent Falconer gave the members of the club an interesting 
address on the healthy, invigorating recreation of curling hut 
warned them to bear in mind that the sport was only to he 
used as a means of recreation in leisure moments. Mr. K. W. 
Lowden. Presidenl of the Prospect Park Curling Club, and 
Mr. David Carlyle. Vice-President of the Ontario Curling 
Association, were guests of the cluh and congratulated them 
on the completion of a very successful season.

Victotria Athletic Union 

X no other College in the Univer- 
sity of Toronto are facilities for 
taking an adaquate amount of 
exercise readier at hand, more 
easy of access, or to be secured 
at more reasonable rates than at 
Victoria. A large, level campus, 
at the rear of the College, gives 
ample space for those playing 
football or baseball in season, 
and a comfortable building, with 
lockers and shower baths, affords 
great convenience and comfort for the players. Improve- 
ments this fall have been quite extensive. Two new cinder 
tennis courts, making a total of five, have increased the 
accommodation for lovers of tennis, and will relieve the 
congestion so noticeable last year in this popular game. 
The new alley board allows an eight-man and a four-man 
game to lie in progress simultaneously without interference, 
and has given fresh impetus to this popular form of exercise. 

No account of athletics at Victoria would be complete 
without mention of "The Rink." In winter the campus is 
flooded and divided into three large hockey and one general 
skating rink. Space is reserved every afternoon, from 
four o'clock to six. for those who wish to chase the puck, 
and this year one hockey rink will be thrown open for 
general skating during the afternoon, so that, whether con- 
sidered from a financial, sporting or social point of view, 
the rink is a most important factor in student life. 

The control of athletics is in the hands of a Central 
Executive, elected with the view of giving adequate repre- 
sent at ion to every branch of sport. The Executive strives 
in every way to encourage athletics, arranging not only 
inter-year games in soccer, hockey and handball, which 
always arouse great local interest, but also seeing that 
Victoria is represented by strong teams in the Mulock and 
Jennings Cup inter-faculty series. Vic. is also giving each 
year her fair quota to University rugby, association, hockey 
and lacrosse teams, and her students evidence a keen interest 
in University sport.

University College Women's Athletic Club 

\^TOMEN are coming more and more to realize what an 
™ » important part regular exercise plays in the develop- 
ing of the sustaining powers. The chief aim of the Women's 
Athletic Club of University College, and especially of the 
department of physical culture, is to give every woman of 
the College an opportunity to satisfy this need of regular 
systematic exercise and to help make her physically efficient 
to fulfil life's duties. 

Besides the physical culture there are also several other 

departments, such as fencing, hockey and tennis. The 
increase of interest in the gymnasium work this year is 
shown by the increased attendance at the class work. 

The tennis tournament, held in October, was very suc- 
cessful and the hockey season which is just beginning is 
looked forward to with an enthusiasm which is increased by 
the fact that a cup is to be presented to the winning team 
in the Inter-college Games. 


Victoria College Women's Athletic Club 

SINCE its organization, in the fall of '05, the history 
of the Victoria College Athletic Cluh has been one 
of Steady and prosperous development, until to-day 
it is one of the most important of our College socie- 
ties. It controls all branches of College athletics — tennis. 
basket ball, Held hockey and ice hockey. Tennis this year 
had many devotees, and the tournaments were successfully 
run off. two cups — in the open and handicap — being com- 
peted for. Victoria is also represented yearly in the Inter- 
College Tournament with University College and Trinity 
College, and though not successful in winning the cup 
presented by .Mrs. Ramsay Wright enjoyed the contest 

The field hockey season was also a marked success, as 
great interest was taken in the game, although none of the 
other colleges play it. 

Enthusiasm in ice hockey is increasing, and if this counts 
for anything the coming season promises to be one of the 
best. An Inter-College schedule is being arranged by the 
University Athletic League, and we also hope that greater 
interest will be aroused in our own College by the arrange- 
ment of the inter-year matches, for which Miss Addison 
has very kindly presented a cup. The Athletic Club 
certainly deserves the support of all women students of 
the College.

The St. Hilda Athletic Association 

^ZOMEONE lias written: "Without proper develop- 
^-^ ment of the mind man is naught, but without the 
proper developmenl of the body to aid the mind man is 
less than naught." and in this enlightened age the latter 
part of this extract is considered one of the truest sayings 
of man. Thus we are prone to consider one of our oldest 
institutions, the Athletic Association, which has flourished 
practically since the College was founded, as the happiest 
idea which early St. Hildians brought into reality. It has 
been almost entirely supported by the students and has 
steadily grown in numbers and enthusiasm. By becoming 

a member one may experience all the joys of tennis, paper- 
chasing, hockey and basketball. Last year a loving cup was 
donated by College friends in memory of Frances II. 
Endaeote. 'OS. who died May the ninth. 1907. This cup 
is to he held for the year by the winner of the St. Hilda's 
tournament, while a smaller cup is given to her to keep. In 
every department there has been an ever increasing show 
of enthusiasm and to prophesy that this will continue for 
years to come would be more like an actual fact than a 
wild forecast.

IX 1873 the Young Men's Christian Association was 
organized in University College. From the beginning 

the work grew to such an extent that it was deemed 
advisable in 1885 to erect a building to be used solely by 
the Association. Accordingly, the present building was 
put up and formally opened in March, 1886, the first 
General Secretary to give his whole time to the work being 
appointed in 1889. 

Associations developed rapidly in the various Colleges. 
In 1904 an important step was taken in the Federation of 
the Associations in University College, Victoria College, 
Faculty of Applied Science, Medical and Dental Colleges. 
In 1907 the Ontario Agricultural College, Guelph, entered, 
and this fall a new Association, organized in the Faculty of 
Education, was admitted, making in all seven Associations 
now in the Federation. 

Two Secretaries arc devoting their full time to the 

extension of the work, which is making remarkable progress 
under their direction. In particular, the Bible Study 
Department has grown most rapidly. At present there arc 
nearly 1,000 men engaged in systematic daily Bible Study. 
while v\<.'vy Friday evening nearly 100 men meet in the 
Association Building to be trained for leadership by five 
professors, who are generously giving a great deal of their 
time to the work. 

The Association is responsible for all religious work 
carried on among the men in the University. The one great 
obstacle in the way of rapid development at present seems 
to lie the limited quarters in which it is necessary to conduct 
the work. With the removal of this difficulty by a new 
building in the near future, the circle id' the Association 
influence will continue to widen till it becomes a still more 
potent force in the developing of the best type of young

Federal Executive Y. W. C. A. 

FOR some time it was thought that more effective 
Christian work could be done among the women 
students of Toronto, if there were closer union among 
the workers, and the result was the formation, in the spring 
of 1908, of the Federal Executive Board of the Young 
Women's Christian Association. This Board has for its 
object the union of the Young Women's Christian Associa- 
tions in tlie different universities, colleges and schools. 
that they may co-operate in permanently organizing the 
work among the young women of these institutions, and in 
opening Associations in other colleges and schools in 
Toronto. It further aims to foster an inter-collegiate spirit, 
which will be a source of mutual helpfulness and inspira- 
tion, and will unite the Students' Young Women's 
Christian Associations as a force for the advancement of 
Christian work. 

The Federal Executive Board includes representatives 
from University College, Victoria College. Medicine, Faculty 

of Education, McMaster University and Normal School. 
An Advisory Board, which works with the Federal 
Executive, is composed of representative women from the 
various colleges. Miss Bedinger, of Richmond. Kentucky, 
has been chosen the first Inter-collegiate Secretary. 

As yet, the work done by the Federal Executive has 
consisted largely in bringing about a feeling of union 
between the different colleges represented. It has attempt- 
ed, also, to introduce uniform courses of Bible and Mission 
Study in the Young Women's Christian Associations, and 
has held two Workers' Conferences to strengthen the 
Christian work in the colleges. 

It aims, in the future, to be a centralizing force in the 
work of the Association, and to interest an increasing 
number of students and alumna' in this work. Its influence 
will always be on the side of everything: that makes for 
permanence and strength in the Christian work among the 
women students of Toronto.

Women's Anglican Club 

"* Tl K l'aci thai the University of Toronto is one of the 
* greatesl uniforming agencies in Ontario to-day is 
recognized as a world-wide fact. Among the sub-societies 
which have a place in this greal organization the Anglican 
Women's Club stands very prominent. Though organized 
only in the fall of 1908, its power has been wonderfully 
felt. The aim of the Club is to co-operate in the extension 
work of the Anglican Deaconess Home and to strengthen 
the Anglican women of the College in nobler, truer work, 
not only among themselves but also for the better part 

which each noble woman is expected to play in the life 
about her. The Club also holds monthly literary meetings, 
at which the members have been privileged to listen to most 
interesting and helpful addresses on such subjects as "The 
Great Pan-Anglican Congress held in London. England, in 
dune. 1908," by the Rev. Dr. Cody. M.A.; an illustrated 
lecture on "Beautiful Japan." by Rev. II. .}. Hamilton. 
B.A., of .Japan, and others. All Anglican women are urged 
to become members. AVe have, indeed, a decided part to 
play, but to do this we must be awake to our opportunities.

THERE are few national institutions of more 
value and interest to the country than the 
Royal Military College at Kingston. At the 
same time its object and the work it is accom- 
plishing are not sufficiently understood by the general 

The College is a Government institution, designed 
primarily for the purpose of giving the highest technical 
instructions in all branches of military science to cadets 
and officers of Canadian Militia. In fact it is intended 
to take the place in Canada of the English Woolwich 
and Sandhurst and the American West Point. 

The Commandant and military instructors are all 
officers on the active list of the Imperial army, lent for 
the purpose, and in addition there is a complete staff 
of professors for the civil subjects which form such a 
large proportion of -the College course. Medical atten- 
dance is also provided. 

Whilst the College is organized on a strictly military 
basis the cadets receive in addition to their military 
studies a thoroughly practical, scientific and sound 
training in all subjects that are essential to a high and 
general modern education. 

The course in mathematics is very complete and a 
thorough grounding is given in the subjects of Civil 
Engineering, Civil and Hydrographic Surveying, Physics, 
Chemistry, French and English. 

The strict discipline maintained at the College is one 
of the most valuable features of the system. 

In addition, the constant practice of gymnastics, 

drills and outdoor exercises of all kinds, ensures good 
health and fine physical condition. 

Seven commissions in His Majesty 's regular army 
are annually awarded as prizes to the cadets. 

Three ( 'ommissions in the Permanent Force will be 
given annually, should vacancies exist, to the graduating 
class, viz.: — Every year one in the Infantry; and each 
alternate year: 

One in the Engineers and one in the Horse Artillery. 

One in the Cavalry or Mounted Rifles and one in 
the Garrison Artillery. 

Further, every three years a Commission in the Ord- 
nance Corps will be given to the graduating class. 

Three 2nd class clerkships, or appointments with 
equivalent pay, will be offered annually to the graduating 
class, such appointments to be in the following Depart- 
ments, viz.: — Public W T orks, Railways and Canals, Inland 
Revenue, Agriculture and Interior. 

The length of the course is three years, in three 
terms of 9Lj months' residence each. 

The total cost of the three years ' course, including 
board, uniforms, instructional material, and all extras, 
is from $750 to $800. 

The annual competitive examination for admission to 
the College will take place at the headquarters of the 
several military districts in which candidates reside, in 
May of each year. 

For full particulars of this examination or for any 
other information application should be made as soon 
as possible, to the Secretary of the Militia Council, 
Ottawa, Ont., or to the Commandant, Royal Military 
College, Kingston, Ont.
